a useful command interpreter should provide some builtins IMO.
this is much more efficient and avoids excessive exec chaining
(analoguous to single combined utils for several tasks vs the
"one task one tool" approach). there might be a very good reason
shells provide builtin "cd", "umask", "(u)limit" etc ...

i dunno if such builtins would be possible with execline, too.
