Ardunio to issue custom command line for upload....

Hi all,

Due to a number of factors, is there a way for the 1.0.6 IDE to use the standalone avrdude or to issue an OS level command passing the hex file path to it rather than using the in built Java based upload mechanism?

I have a scenario where the arduino being uploaded is not local and am using a push mechasim outside of the IDE, and would be nice to automate.

Any ideas?
