Yes scripting is my primary use. I'm intending to move to ipython as my 
primary command line shell, because it so nicely remembers everything 
I've done and makes it easy to reuse later.

I see Sujoy has been making progress in this area, which I'm sure will 
be applauded by many. My main use of openev is as a quick image browser 
and exporting an area of interest. I have other routes to do the same so 
could live without openev for a time if needed. I'll try OSGeo4w and see 
  how it goes. Thanks for the tip.
