I would just like to thank all the developers who answered, either here or
privately. I haven't found a solution yet, primarily because I didn't
explain myself clearly, sorry for the confusion.

When I wrote "shell script" above, I didn't make clear that I am (almost)
only interested in shell running remotely, not on the server which is
running drupal. The tips and pointers I got are less useful (=require more
extra tweaking to work) in such a context, so I *think* I'll retry, when I
have again time, with the bash+curl approach

Thanks anyway for the info, it was quite useful to learn something on how
drupal works and is developed.
