  One question. Why?!? Any client is capable of suspension, allowing you 
to set up a few background scripts from your shell. A few seconds to type 
it in, launch them, then bring the mud client back to the foreground. 
Once the scripts are completed, a message will be sent to the job in the 
foreground. Adding capabilities like that to your code, is to invite 
hackers/crackers to attempt tomfoolery with your system.
