The only trick is to consider the shello as a (mostly braindead) programming
languages trying to make sense out of the ascii strings that unix subsystems
use to report status and issue commands. Kind of a braindead lisp dialect
with flat ascii strings (including baroque constraints) instead of
nice regular recursive lists and structures.

We'll probably have to add some autodetection early in the script,
and then it's almost the same, isn't it?

God gave me brains so that I use it, and appreciate his work with the eyes
of a critic and a connoisseur; not so that I behave like a fool, and
believe the twaddles of the first come prophets and priests.
