i guess we'll have to disagree again, david.           :+)

appleevents _require_ every application to implement them.

it seems to me that another model could well have been used -- 
under which i could successfully drive _any_ and _all_ programs,
regardless of whether they had "implemented" that ability or not.

one-click follows this model, as does frontier scripting i believe...


p.s.  resedit _does_ throw up a "wanna save?" dialog if changes 
have been unsaved when resedit receives a "quit" apple event.
