I can understand that. However, with these particular tools it's not 
that much a question of the applications not being stable enough for 
everyday use, but that most of them are only useful for and usable by 
people that are a bit more familiar with a linux/unix system. All of 
these tools require a terminal and some of them even want you to be root 
(tcpdump & hcidump at least).

I think that some of these tools like 'less' and 'nano' should be 
visible in the application manager, since they are useful for everyone. 
This requires a small change in the debian packaging and I'll put these 
on my todo-list.

Maybe I'm being a bit too 'Big Brotherly' with this approach, what do 
you think? :-)
