Ideally it would also be possible to use the command mechanism with some 
source other than mail as well; I've done a little hacking on RT1 to 
support commands over authenticated zephyr, but it requires a fairly 
complete rewrite of the action mechanism in RT1 so I didn't get very far on 
it.  Something which can be fed a random file or a Perl string would be 
useful for that.
