Although I think that using is fun, natural and sensible,
it's possible that I'm psychotic.

If you *want* to learn how to use, you might find it
enjoyable.  If you just want to make the darn thing work, the more you
wrestle with the more frustrated you'll get.

The good news is that I've put together a small Python script that will
(hopefully) make things a little easier on you.  Give me a day or two to
do more bughunting, and once it's done it should be pretty easy on you
to edit these values.

Anyone who knows both Python and OS X: please feel free to check out --

You'll need Norman Ramsey's Noweb package installed in order to rebuild
from the Noweb source, but you can also just look inside src/ to get a
pre-extracted version (named "agent-alter").  Alternately, just read the
two PDFs.  Any and all bug finds gratefully accepted.  Let's see if we
can't get something ready for this guy by the weekend.  :)
