Indeed. It is perfectly inclined to use email. Which makes
[initial] integration perfectly *trivial*. :)
As to it having been shell based. While there's nothing wrong with
that at all, in fact it's advantageous in many respects. I was toying
with the idea of perhaps converting (augmenting) it to being Perl
based, by way of a statically linked mini-perl interpreter. I thought
it would better *empower* it, also providing for a more "user friendly"
dialog. But, like I said; just *toying* with the idea. :)
