Re: as apps popularity evaluation

I forgot one important point: the low popularity of asexec is IMHO because
of the unclear description of the apps. I know what asexec is for.
I was already subscribed this list when Ethan announced it, but
what the heck is a "state machine"? And the so called "transition states"
?  The great appeal "It can be anything you want" is lost in this
description. Say, "it can update your xmodmap", "you can create an
animation here", "It can turn your X-10 on/off",  is it much more
appealling, eh? 

P.S. Despite of this strong demonstration of love for asexec, it refuses
to stay in my Wharf, dying with a XCopy Area error :(
