Yeah, bash scripting is also nice - if you don't plan to have it

Yeah, that looks like a good idea. Came to my mind after sending the patch,

Hmmm, Python has popen and friends, but I had a lot of problems with them back
in my CapiSuite project (some years ago, though...). So I don't feel like
risking stability for a few CPU cycles yet...
