bosh stands for browsable output shell. This is a bit of a
misnomer because it isn't really a shell. What is does is
store the output of a specified program in a buffer, and
provides a simple curses interface to browse this buffer.
Actions can be configured which can make use of the
contents of the currently selected line.
Commands and actions are stored in bosh configuration files.
These can include shebang line (#!/usr/bin/bosh) so that the
configuration can just be run from the command-line.
