It was just a thought.&nbsp; I figured that&#39;s why we had CPUs... to automate those mundane tasks and &quot;hitting enter a few more times&quot;.&nbsp; On the other hand I can see how a bunch of little scripts can become clutter.&nbsp; Perhaps when I get a chance, I&#39;ll build one and submit it.&nbsp; Even if its not added I suppose I can just use it myself.

<br><br></div></div>I&#39;m going to have to say &quot;no&quot; to this one. Atleast, I don&#39;t think any member of<br>releng is going to take the time to write a script to do this. If you&#39;d like to<br>contribute one, perhaps we&#39;ll consider it.
