oh yes.  i don't think i've ever written a script that writes other
scripts but i often script even simple things, to make sure i don't
mistype a really critical command or minimize the downtime /
vulnerability window when a bunch o' commands are needed to do a
config change.  i also have an exact record of what i did, for the
future.  just gotta remember to document those scripts!

i was actually admiring bill's massive stunt.
