These are definitely problems, but I don't think wrapping the lines  
for reading purposes will be very good because it will give a  
distorted impression of what the script has to look like.  I think  
the best would be if we could do something like line continuations in  
the script, but when I tried this it didn't work.  Maybe there is  
some easy way to get gshell to interpret "\" like bash?

(actually only the first block is a snippet.... working on fixing  
that now)
