I'm not sure what the process is for Jack to include something, but I
just want to say that I'm in support of this. I think that appscript
works fine, and you are far more interested in maintaining it and
writing documentation than I am for aeve. I'll go as far as including
appscript in my PyCon talk in lieu of aeve. The first thing I would do
is file a feature request on sourceforge. Mailing list messages aren't
very good "to-do" items :)
I'll review the appscript code when I get a chance and let you know if
I have anything worth contributing from my current, unreleased, aeve
codebase. The low level bits (primarily the terminology parser and
adaptation stuff) are quite nice.
