Right.  You might consider Skip's suggestion, too, i.e., store the script
remotely, it might save some time.  We could have an alist, cars as regexps
matching hosts, cdrs storing the path to the remote initialization scripts.
If a host is not found in this list, send the script instead.  How does
that sound?
