Sam merely saw an opportunity to help.  Nothing more, nothing less.

Gump can order and execute anything that can be run from the command 
line.  If this turns out to be a helpful starting point from which 
someone who wishes to evolve gump in a particular direction, then I will 
assist to the point of getting gump up and running and voting them in as 
a committer.

There is nothing that is run by gump that can not be run outside of gump.
