But I might be wrong of course.
True. Amazon disabled access to the database quite a while back. While being able to access the database has some risks, it also have some very useful benefits such as being able to send metadata, reading books statistics, etc. For me, the benefits are worth the risks.

Absolutely, especially if a risk is managable.

Alternately, you could run entire command from NickelMenu. See the Toggle Screensave command for an example using test to detect a file's existence.
Thanks. I'll have a look at the Toggle Screensave command.
