Description Rob Crittenden 2008-02-25 11:04:14 EST
If you press ctrl-C during an XML-RPC operation a KeyboardInterrupt error will
be thrown and not caught resulting in a backtrace.

A general Exception should also be added for non-specific errors.

restructure the tools

This is a potentially disruptive patch to all the admin tools. I wanted to be
able to catch KeyboardInterrupt but I needed to move all the imports under a
try/except in order to catch it in all cases. If one interrupted early enough
you'd catch it in the import phase which wasn't covered.

So I moved all the imports into a main try/except which calls our main. I moved
most other exceptions out of main into this top level try/except to make the
individual functions more readable.

I also found a difference in the way GSSError is handled in python 2.4 and
python 2.5 so I added a small helper to deal with it.
