Well, it is a bit nALFS specific - currently, you can't send any input
to the commands being executed. For example you can't do a simple:


and then enter your password, new password or whatever.
The program would just block.

Something like that should probably be implemented, I only have to see
whether some new tag, or special attribute to <system_command> must be
added or not (like <system_command requires_input="yes"> for example).
