wouldn't it be nicer to have
- mainwrapper and call combined
- helper fucntions defined for execp "cat" etc

i haven't downloaded your package, but the syntax as it is looks very
verbose.  i know it's a small point, but shells have to support a compact
syntax (or is the idea only to support "shell scripts" and not provide a
shell? - i was assuming you'd start ghci in a window and load this module
automatically when you open an xterm...)
