PowerPlant X & Apple Events

I haven't dug into it thoroughly, so I hope I'm wrong...

It looks like PowerPlant X has no Document class, and no other support
for AppleScript (the Apple Event Model which was in PowerPlant).

Yes, I know there's some classes to handle raw Apple Events. But I
don't see anything that the framework does with them.

And what happened to Undo support?

IMHO, there's really too much missing for it to be more than a
"milestone" release. I'm not knocking the work they did, but it's not
really realistic for anybody to learn all the new (or relatively new)
stuff, _and_ add in what are probably considered convenience classes,
like MP threads, tables, AEs, undo, and on and on. New models for
documents and controllers and broadcasters are one thing - support for
a complete application is another. Blending new & old doesn't seem
possible. And it's not relaistic for each of us to roll our own classes
for this stuff when we know there must be something in the works.

I figure by the time I learn all the newer Carbon APIs, it'll be ready
to go. Maybe I haven't looked closely enough, or there's something
fundamental that I don't "get". If there's something that I don't get,
fine, then the problem is in the examples & dox.

Still, you can't explain away the lack of critical APIs there. I'm
happy that they made such a nice framework, but I'm disappointed at the
lack of stuff, and the dox and samples.
