Some people are a little confused by my very brief post so here is the
more detailed 'use case'

I need to run a set of 'scripts' on various application directories.
These scripts can be anything. SQL DDL, XML configuration files to be
run via a custom program(s), templates to be updated etc...

Some scripts will have pre-requisite  scripts

I need to produce customised logging and error reporting. In most
cases some attempt should be made at error recovery or roll-back, but
it varies.

I'd like a to be able to provide a bunch of files containing these
scripts and some meta-data and have a framework do the heavy lifting.
