The only "problem" with creating standalone commandline programs is
that they currently need to carry the engine baggage with them, so
they're each bloated by some 2 megabytes of library data. Okay - one
other problem: the engine eats some of the commandline arguments
itself and they're not well documented, so you have to tread a bit
carefully. Other than that it's quite a useful technique.
