Command Window for Scripting



I was wondering if there were ideas to add command window for scripting
inside schematic and pcbnew for v6?

For example, in Allegro you can create functions/aliases that when typed
into command line while inside layout tool would execute an for example
change grid type from 0.1mm to 1mm or turn on a predetermined set of
layers. This is for professionals who automate a lot of their actions to as
few actions as possible while working on large projects and need the
ability to reduce a dozen common steps into one.

What kind of scripting interface would it be?
