I wanted to make a module (boash) that would be useful, but clearly it 
is not. Here, is a feature that is useful that no one has. This may be 
the module I decide to make. So, there is no cross-platform for such a 
command any where? Would this be a useful module?

I know Steven is not scorning me. He is making me think and I have an idea.
