Thanks for the friendly prod; I had been getting behind with things.  I have
just now uploaded them to ftp-master, so you should be able to find them in
the archive soonish.  If you don't want to wait, mail me privately and I can
e-mail them to you.

Currently, grunt does not keep track of command histories.  If you would
like to implement that, your patch would be accepted, but I don't plan to do
it myself.

As outputs could easily be megabytes or gigabytes in size, I don't think it
is prudent to keep them around in any sort of history.  Right now, grunt
does not itself process the output; however, I intend to add a facility for
the output to be sent back to the originator using encrypted e-mail or UUCP.

This is possible (send your script to gruntrun as stdin, and make the
command be a shell interpreter) now, but not as easy as it should be.  This
is on the todo list too.
