Quick comments off the top of my head (maybe completely wrong...)

1. No need to create one-use variables (there are probably various
schools on that...).

2. I think there is no need for `apply', either.

3. Instead of the low-level-ish set-process-filter and start-process,
why not use something much simpler like `call-process-shell-command'?

Hth,
