I'd thought of that too. It needs to be built into the core so that encapped applications can run for (say) 30 days or 50 invocations or 100 files-converted or whatever,

That's true. But the script library and this list would let us all still share snippets and insights. And the "professional" developers could post reduced-function versions of the "commercial" products as source code in the script libraries. That'd whet some people's appetites for the "real thing" while allowing access to their source code so we could see how good they are at Reboling. Sunanda.
