along not completely dissimilar lines=85

I=92ve currently got a bunch of old data (couple hundred gigs maybe) =
from vos dump that I=92d like to be able to examine to see exactly =
what=92s there anymore. Right now, my personal cell lives on a couple =
VMs out in various public clouds, and I haven=92t got around to standing =
up a fileserver inside the firewall yet.

is there a tool (preferably stand-alone) that I could run on those old =
dumps to copy the data out of them into a local directory on, say, my =
mac.  Then I can copy whatever of it I want to keep back into AFS later.
