There is some partial support for saving bsh commands and loading them
again...  bsh objects are serializable.  However this wasn't really supported
fully in the 1.0 release.

In 2.0 I hope to provide an easy to use save workspace and load workspace
feature...  as well as make sure that all bsh scripted objects are

You might experiment with saving a bsh object (say 'this' for the current

Check back soon as I hope to resume work on bsh shortly.
