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!

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.

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.
