Ok, I've done some more work on this and seem to have advanced its
stability and functionality. It still does not handle the "store only
latest version" flag for those who need that. It also doesn't handle
Branch or Share operations. It does however handle
deleted/recovered/purged/destroyed files though. I made the handling of
environment variables and command-lines params (hopefully) a little more
robust. A major change I made was replacing the command history parsing
to use regexps which is a big improvement. Things like spaces in
filenames which were certain death before should work now.

It's still got a way to go but this is progress. If anyone would care to
grab the lastest version (see URL below) and give it a try please go
ahead. I'll hopefully have improvements soon.
