Hey, some cool additions... but the point of not jazzing it up like that is to follow the UNIX methodology -- that is, to create a program with output that others can easily consume.

I'd rather see you either (a)abstract my script into a module and then create two scripts -- one that uses your enhancements, and one that doesn't; or (b)create a wrapper or pipe target for the output of my script to add your enhancements.

Honestly, I'd prefer option (a), as it would be trivial, then, to create GUI front-ends and the like. Maybe I'll take that on, if you don't...
