This should be covered already. You can see the command and copy&paste
it into you scripts (that was added not so long ago)

What Paolo is asking is that you can edit the box where that console
call is shown, and alter the call to GDAL. I guess that's not such an
important feature, since most of the people uses that for copying it,
like you do, not to tweak it.
