comment When module calling gets ugly
That's true.. it is possible to test the whole script using mocks. I hesitated because I wondered if having such a script in the first place was a symptom of bad design. But from the comments so far, it appears that the script is a natural consequence of "dataflow programming".

What are the pros/cons of this approach? I see that it solves the problem of the calling application using multiple wrapper objects yet keeping the connection open.
