Indeed, the XSF is carrying around tons of shell functions that are
generally useful and so should go in to some sort of central package, but
there's nowhere to put them. Getting something like this started has been
on the backburner for me for a while. I'd happily contribute what we've got
to such a package, or help start one up.
