It's probably (replace-regexp-in-string "\n\\'" "" str) or something
like that.  I expect you need it because you're using a sub-process
script and need to get rid of its final newline.  Once you replace this
script with Elisp code the need should disappear since the data you'll
get will already be properly "chomp'd".

BTW, rather than shell-command* you're usually better off using
`call-process' when the command you run doesn't need any of shell's
features (e.g. doesn't use pipes, etc...).  The benefit is that you
won't have to worry about the need to shell-quote-argument.

Yes, we'd like to have it in GNU ELPA.  Help would be welcome for that.
