I think expect also is an evil hack.  I guess it's just the old cli that
is evil.  If you know the API, it should be almost as easy to make a perl
script that calls the right subs ... or maybe hack the cli not to ask for
"yes".  Anyway, I'm lazy, so I always fix such things directly through the

	update each_req set status='dead' where serial_num in (....);

well, of course that is an even more evil hack, as it doesn't create
transactions as it should.
