[Mediawiki-l] Is there a way to upload images from the commandline?

I have many images to upload, so the web-based method is too slow.

I'm hoping I can do the work with a shellscript instead.  (It's dozens 
of times faster to use the unix system and a good text editor to 
generate a list of filenames and content for the corresponding 
webpages, than it is to upload things one by one.)

Is there a standalone script to do this, or should I write one, based 
on the includes/SpecialUpload.php file?
