Even adding something (e.g., Tools/README) to the "undocumented modules" 
section of the standard library would be an improvement on the status quo.

I also noticed that the Windows installer does *not* install 
"Tools/README.txt", so there isn't even a synopsis of the tools which _are_ 
included with the Windows installer.
