  What I propose..
   1. No wrt_xxx function will assume it is will be daisy chained from 
previous writes to the makefile.
   2. Internally cmds will execute in series with "&& \" stringing

   This will mean I will need to review every line of code to see how it 
will be affected. A quick glance shows only a few places where I will 
need to touch the code in the individual master.sh files.

   I don't trust my error trapping 100%.. yet
