Alessandro, when you write "Optionally, I would like also to be
able to let my program interact with the terminal - at a minimum
I'd like to read the current working directory, and to set it"
and "... it doesn't work", I am unsure of your meaning. John

$SHELL and the Python application, or do you have what you need
for that aspect, already?
