Google App Engine for JAVA Local Data Viewer!

I've been screaming like a sissy for a local Data Viewer since I put my hands on the Google App Engine. Turns out it has been there for a while (definitely not from the beginning) but I didn't know. It can be accessed when you're running the development server locally from the following URL (assuming you're running the default setup):

http://localhost:8080/_ah/admin/

You can browse your data and delete records but for the time being (at least on Java App Engine) edit operations are not supported, so don't bin just yet your dirty little hacks (a bunch of servlets in my case) for local development.
