Umm, are you sure that's the link you intended to post? ;)

I don't think we can ship this script per se. Adding a dependency on 
Javascript (and on Java for sysadmin work) seems a bit heavyweight to me.

However: the management plugin will add support for a lot of this sort 
of thing. At the moment there's no command line client for it, but you 
could write a simple one with bash and curl, or in almost any language. 
A nice command line client is on my TODO list, albeit not near the top. 
Funnily enough I was having an argument yesterday about the value of 
such a thing ;)

Also at the moment the management plugin won't let you publish or get 
messages. That's also on the TODO list in some form.

I'm planning on making a preview release of the management plugin later 
today, at which point things may start to become clearer...

Cheers, Simon
