Wow, I'm impressed!

To make it run on the mac I had to add tests for the existence of os.system 
only. (So all statements "if os.system(...) > 0:" got to be "if hasattr(os, 
"system") and os.system(...) > 0:").

There are however various other niceties that could be added to make it more 
useful, can this be put into the repository or something?
