The idea behind Sandra is that its already developed, and is automated. Why reinvent the wheel. Yes, you can write a program to do this using WMI, but.. low and behold one already exists... Sandra.

That's one of the reasons why I enjoy Gentoo Linux so much. It's easy to actually find a tool.. As long as it's in the portage tree, of course; but the tree is growing every day.
For Gentoo, specifically: eix, esearch, gentoolkit, bash-completion, bash-completion-config.
In general.. strace and gdb.. And just search the portage tree for whatever else you need, really.
If you don't use Gentoo, well, there's always sourceforge.net and freshmeat.net
