So the recent discussion on importing tokens led me to write a script to

now I need to integrate it into the IPA framework.
This command will parse one or more xml files, creating a set of tokens
to be added. Given that we already have otptoken-add on the server-side,
it seems to me that all work needs to be done on the client-side. How do
I create a new client-side command that calls existing server-side API?
subclass from frontend.Local, override run() or forward() method and
operation of otptoken_add from there.
See cli.help, for example.
If you do an override, do forward() for cli-specific work.
But you should do as little as possible for reasons you already stated:
the UI. Anything you do in forward Petr will need to implement in the UI.
Unfortunately we don't yet have a nice way to handle files. We have
tickets open at https://fedorahosted.org/freeipa/ticket/1225 and
If this file is something that would be pasted into a big text field
then you can probably handle it in a similarly clumsy way that we do
CSRs in the cert plugin.
