SharePoint List Definition Exporter

I was looking to create a schema file for a list I currently have in SharePoint.  If you have done this before you can understand the pain.  In my searches though I came across a great tool on Codeplex which offers the ability to export the schema.xml file for a list you currently have in SharePoint.

Imtech StsAdm Commands v1.0.0.0

Additional I found a great article on creating the definition and code for deploying a list using a feature receiver.
