I have wanted to work on this for months now but still haven't written
a line of code *sigh*...

What I would envision is a way to just execute a command buffer that
contains an array of chars. In regular usage you would just read from
stdin while for '.' and macros you could just pass the saved command
in form of a char array for easy processing/replay.

I still want to work on a proof-of-concept implementation but given my
track record I wouldn't hold my breath...
