I think you nailed it: the idea about this application was to have something to play with S3 on the Mac, at least something a bit more integrated than a command-line tool. I was more motivated to provide a basic application to experiment with S3 than coding a S3-based backup/replication/etc software. It does not mean that I won't add more user-oriented features (actually, I plan to do that), but if the app and its code can be useful in itself to "s3-enable" other Mac software, I'd be perfectly happy.

Panic should really integrate S3 into Transmit, that would be awesome.
