      Sounds like a good process to me :) But the documentation can be
      helpful (though terse), in the areas in which it chooses to be. It is
      nice, for example, not to have to try strange combinations of
      characters after ^! to discover what operations are available...
      although maybe we could discover some great features that way!

      Well, sometimes you see what you look for... it is hard to say how
      much use multitasking clips have gotten, but certainly it seems that
      they have gotten some use, because there is discussion about having
      clips that sit in the background and do things, and how to end them
      "typically by watching for Shift+Alt" and a couple coding conventions
      for detecting that combination.

      Thanks Alan, I wonder if Mr. Fookes ever reads any of this stuff, on
      the forums, and comments. Seems the knowledge on this topic is quite
      limited (only a few responders, with only experimental knowledge (like
      mine, but mine is based on very limited experience so far))... so a
      few comments from Mr. Fookes might be extremely enlightening.
