Sure, and that's pretty much the method I use, and I imagine most arch
testers/devs use.  However, in most cases I tend to just find it
easier to do everything manually than to use the tools, even though I
might want to use a tool.  I guess the AT job just isn't that hard to
begin with, and the last thing I want is some tool posting in bugs or
committing something because I didn't catch something in the
documentation.
