You're right, I had copied too much stuff in there. It's now a somewhat more reasonable 350 kb. New version coming soon!

I have to say that's fairly shocking. I added Growl support to try it out and the .dmg size went from 80 kb to over 850 kb. Is that expected? Is that considered reasonable?

I've just uploaded a new version with a "hide" option. I'll have to look into Growl support.

@systempuntoout: These tools require a 64-bit operating system (and a corresponding 64-bit build of Python) because unify.py wants to mmap() the entire XML dump into memory. The input posts.xml file is currently 5.2 GB.

@systempuntoout: You may need to manually remove the BOM from the top of the users.xml file. (I think that's the file in question, I'm not in a position to check at the moment.)
