If you haven't taken a look at HREF EXE's yet, you should.  Duncan's working on a little app for us to use internally, and he moved it over to an href exe a couple weeks ago.  Now when I find something that's not working like it could, I send Duncan mail (I know, I know - we should be using a bug database, but hey!  it's just a small fix!!), Duncan goes off and does magic, and then he sends me mail - "Try it now".  No install, no waiting for code to copy, no nuthin!  This is cool snot stuff...
