I mean that while plugins can execute commands, for instance:
weechat.command("/whois xyz")
there is no easy way to get the output of that command for internal processing.

What you exactly mean by "read the output"? Eg. exec (perl version) read the output and print it into current/specified buffer.

Plugins currently are able to execute commands, but are unable to read the output. Adding this functionality would increase the versatility of WeeChat plugins.
