      Sorry, you cannot combine the templates with the web service right
      now on a single action... I did realize it would be nice to do a mix
      of actions, web service, and templates all on a single line. Will
      have to give that some thought. I was thinking maybe prefixing
      actions with action: and webservice with webservice: so that the line
      can be parsed.

      Maybe just specifying a file that contains a list of actions,
      templates, etc might be easier. Something like
      actionlist:c:\actionlist.txt, where each action is on a seperate line
      within the file. In that way, you could mix and match. Hm...

      For now you could play a trick, use the web service on the
      activation, use templates on the deactivation for the update (or vice
      versa). The deactivation action will always happen after the
      activation action.

      As far as the length goes, it should be able to handle at least 1024
      bytes or so. I am not sure if there is a limitation on an edit box or
      not. I would suspect there is but it is hard to say.
