Stupid Unix tricks

There are some command line programs I would like to put in a nice UI. 
It seems like Revolution would make this pretty easy except I don't see 
in the documentation how to write it. Is there a way to program Rev for 
command line functions directly?

I would like to send "commands" and read and display the results in Rev 
and would rather not simply AppleScript the Terminal app.

I only need to do this for Mac OS X but I suspect the principal would be 
the same for other platforms too.
