Hey there Will! I want to thank you for taking the time to improve CLI access.
It touches my heart; you are a very special person to do this. I think that
having the shortened version in the prompt is best, yet some folks may also
like the more complex prompt. Would it be possible to have an option that
allows both of these to exist and ultimately be selected by the user?
Well it's done now.
I've implemented a solution to the status line issue by making it selectable :)
The command is:
where 's' is:
OFf, ON (separate line), PRompt (tacked on the end)
So it's up to you what you want. The setting is saved in the config file, and
can be changed dynamically. I'll also look at the idea of shortening the line
by omitting earlier parts, but that could actually get quite complicated.
At the same time there's another new feature that's been requested.
You can now call a script from Yoshimi in the current build. The command is:
RUN <s> where 's' is the full file path of the script to run.
Commands are written in the script (a plain text file) in exactly the same
format as they'd normally be typed - including abbreviations. The function
first sets the top context level, then follows any context change created by
the script, finally returning to top level when it's completed.
The script runs quickly, but a very long one might possibly have sequencing
oddities, as some commands may be buffered to low priority threads, while
others are higher priority.
As an aside, I'd like to give a shout out for those who help as and when they
get the time. There's a number of "Yoshimi's little band of helpers" and
we simply wouldn't be where we are without them!

Say you have a poem and I have a tune.
Exchange them and we can both have a poem, a tune, and a song.
Yoshimi source code is available from either:
