[tlug] Web services to replace ad hoc scripts

The point is, you don't need to know Unix to do a better job of
automation, on at least one of the dimensions of quality and quantity.
Any of shell, Python (preferred, of course), Ruby, or (in a pinch)
Perl is plenty.  (Sadly enough, Emacs Lisp no longer qualifies on
performance-when-working or robustness. *sigh*)

Much of this could be done by web services, but they have to be much
more robust than script-installed-on-workstation services.

Nice idea. Simple scripts are easy to write but harder to maintain.

Today, web developers are much easy to find than sysadmin who knows
bash and/or Python/Perl.
