OK.  Don't wait on this, but I'm going to try to find time to check in
my stuff that provides compilerlike framework support for scripts.

Code is tested, docs are written.  The issue is packaging; I was going
to make it a separate ccframe module, but I'm thinking Greg Ewing's
suggestion that it should live in fileinput is on balance a good one.
But that means I have to merge in the docs.

I'll probably get to this tonight.
