Thank you. I like it very much - and it solved a script-hacking
problem I just faced ;-)

I had to do one small fix (add -sasl errlog_type error) 
to get the generated escript script work to my liking:

#!/bin/sh
erl -sasl errlog_type error -pa
/home/epkbeti/cvscheckout/netsimbase/bin/escript-1.0 -noshell -s escript
go $0 $*
