People are building user-oriented tools around S3. Keep in mind that
it has been in production for all of 9 days now, and that developers
are working as fast as they can.
It looks like S3 Explorer (http://www.tighttools.com/) will go beta in
the next week or so.
There are some shell-level tools floating around already, and I've
heard of people doing rsync-style sypport as well.
