It's *primarily* a test tool.  It could also be useful to sysadmins IMO,
hence its inclusion, but I guess I could live with it being left out.

It might make more sense for gf_attach to be packaged as part of
glusterfs-server, since it communicates with server processes.  Would
that help at all?  It probably still requires some specfile changes,
but shouldn't introduce a new dependency since lots of server stuff
already depends on GFAPI.
