Um, ya... well at least those with some skillz.  I'm sure those used  
to Winblows might still prefer "click-click-click..." :-P

Um, well... the 'script' command I wrote like a year ago uses BSF so  
you can run any scripting language that is supported by it...  
assuming you include the required jars for the language's engine.

And of course, you can write commands in whatever you wish, just as  
long as the end result is a java .class which implements the right  
interface so that the shell can load it.
