Please share your frontline experiences. I found OSProcess very useful as a 
facade (shell) to query and access host facilities and services. Its 
inadequate file and network i/o facilities may come in the way of creating stuff 
like scripts but this gap is not formidable. It would be so nice to simply 
probe a system and compile/load a plugin on the fly.

Many apps that run on multiple platforms (compilers, interpreters, desktop 
managers like KDE, typesetters like TeXLive, firefox, openoffice.org, 
audio/video/picture converters) are exposed only through command line services 
and not over a network socket. OSProcess can assist in accessing their 
services easily.
