It's better for us to add fewer more general tools than zillions of
special purpose tools.  That's the unix philosophy... I find it works
quite well.  What you want can be solved easily by filters... which solve
more than just this problem.

filters mean:  you get a chance to run all the output through arbitrary
code.  Your arbitrary code would add a header or footer.
