Please understand that, as external modules go, Pexpect
is easy to like, because it's "pure Python".  It's just
some Python source code.  You can choose to put it all
inside *your* program, then there's nothing "external".
If you wish, just think of it as a particularly long
Usenet reply that has already been tested.
