KindleTool: Create/Unpack Kindle update files

This has been living in a corner of the Wiki/a couple of posts lost in the middle of a sea of threads for a while, so I thought it was time to finally give it a proper home .

For those unfamiliar with it, it's the CLI tool we use to package our hacks in a somewhat user-friendly Kindle update file (.bin), and unpack and poke into official updates .
It's the successor of the trusty kindle_update_tool.py Python packager we used in the K1/2/3 days, and a fork of yifanlu's original KindleTool project (historically forked to fix the Linux support, and ultimately permit a native win32 port). So, as always, thanks to all those people .

It's living right here on GitHub.

I won't be rehashing the readme, but I'm available to answer any queries you might have .

If you don't want to/can't build it yourself, you'll always find a set of binaries here for every system supported:

* Linux x86 (32bit):
-linux-i686: Recommended binary.

* Linux x86_64 (64bit):
-linux-x86_64: Recommended binary.

* Windows:
-mingw: Recommended binary (native Win32).
-cygwin: Cygwin binary. Needs Cygwin installed, as well as the Cygwin package for nettle, and should only be run from an up to date Cygwin shell.

* OS X:
-osx: Built on 10.10, might run on something older (provided it's at least 10.6). Standalone. (Mac Intel only, 64bit).
