Better viewer for introspection data

I've written a first version of a small command-line pretty-printer for
D-BUS introspection data. Given a bus-name (and optionally, a object
path), it will print out a list of all the contained object paths,
their interfaces, and the methods, properties and signals contained in
I wrote it because I couldn't find such a tool already available -- the
introspection data is nice, but it's hard to use when you have to
request each entry manually.
It's written in Python, using dbus-python -- if it is considered useful
enough, I'd be happy to have it included along with dbus-python.
Any comments, bug-fixes, suggestions are greatly appreciated, of course.
It can be downloaded, (for now) from
