A shell script such as

could prompt

        (1) whether or not to remove all unused substances & brands

        (2) which drug pack to install

                - this could prompt input of a drug pack shell script file 

                ? will bash-style autocompletion (input characters, press tab)
                        work *inside* shell scripts?

        (3) the drug pack shell script would

                - download drug data from source (substances +- Brands)
                - assemble a suitable sql file

        (4) only if the above exited with success would the original script

                (a) begin a transaction

                (b) remove all unused substances, brands (if requested)
                        - this could be by re-using an in-common sql file

                (c) load the drug pack data by calling the assembled sql files

                (d) commit
