uh.. I mean, something like a while-cmd like this:

  while-cmd 'test whatever' <<end
      do this

while-cmd does a system('test whatever') and keeps running what it
received from stdin as long as the command received as argument
doesn't return successfully.

But then on second though, since it's a separate process there would
be problems with environment variables, and this might not have an
easy solution.

Probably it brings more problems than it solves, I guess
