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

<br><br></div></div>I'm going to have to say "no" to this one. Atleast, I don't think any member of<br>releng is going to take the time to write a script to do this. If you'd like to<br>contribute one, perhaps we'll consider it.
