Well, I personally do not see any reason not to merge this. I just
suggest to work with mtd-utils from the very beginning. I know it looks
very messy and crappy. But you may make it better while working with it.
And that would be a great contribution as well. And this would be more
collaborative, I think.

So far, it looks like ubi-utils/new-utils would be a better place for
this, isn't it? But it would also be nice to send the source code to the
ML. It will unlikely get much review, but still.
