You can also use Machine.add("chuck filename") as an approximation of
an import mechanism, though you'll have to figure out transitive
dependencies by hand.



Or you can roll up all your Machine.adds into one class for convenience, e.g.



$ chuck --loop &
$ chuck + import.ck
$ chuck + MyStuff2.ck
