I have no problems with that interface - it looks very good and
usable, good work!
The only thing I want to note, is that the new configure module that
Martin added to the 0.6-branch should be used instead of the extra
one, because of the scsh include-dir. OK, not a big thing, but I
noticed, that the previous (host) function returned some sort of
canonical hostname like i386-linux on my machine, but the new module
returns the one generated by configure, which is i686-pc-linux-gnu
here. I'm not sure if this is a problem, or which is prefferable; I
just wanted to mention it...
