I think the _tool and _tool_doc functions are a nice way to prevent
duplication. Creating a new "fbgs" function which invokes _tool sounds
like a good idea to me, but both approaches work and don't make a big
difference to me.

The fbida website <>
differentiates between 5 Tools. Therefore it seemed very intuitive to me
to also create a subpackage for each of those tools, even though I
didn't package thumbnail.cgi yet.

Since it's pretty easy to split the package with the _tool
function I don't see any reason not to do it. It might be unusual but I
think it's the best way to split it.

You are right, I will fix that tomorrow. Furthermore that file should
probably be moved to the ida subpackage.
