To me this seems like much work for no real gain. And it would make it that
much harder to debug a misbehaving "script", in more than one way:
* c is a lot longer than sh, ie sh expresses the logic that much more
* to actually see the new "script" would require to have the source code
installed, something far from everybody has.

be to import SMF from opensolaris/illumos. There one can at least get the
commands run and config used without looking at the source code.
