Skip Plugin and go directly to Free Agent (
They're in beta for a new version, but 1.93, the current one, is very
very accessible, and JFW's already got the scripts for it down to a
science.  Pity, though, that when Agent Versiion 2 comes out, those
scripts will cease to function because Forte have change all their
windowing naming and classing conventions, so the scripts will have to
be re-written.  I'm sort-of in the process of trying to do that now,
as I am on the Agent 2.0 beta team.
