Coomand line interface for Joomla

Drupal has drush: viewtopic.php?f=24&t=291

Drupal has a fantastic command-line interface called Drush ( It seems to me that a major use of JApplicationCli in Joomla could be to enable a similar functionality. Basically, allow installation, upgrades, enabling/disabling of extensions, permission changes and so forth on Joomla sites via the command line. This would allow a developer to maintain many Joomla sites with a minimum of effort. Yet, I see almost nothing written about this. It seems most view the platform as a vehicle for building apps that have nothing to do with the CMS. What is the potential for building Drush-like functionality with JApplicationCli? It would be great if someone more knowledgeable than I could build some example Cli apps that allow you to perform at least some of the Drush functions on Joomla. If I am missing some information on this, please point me in the right direction
