Well, one thing that leaps to mind immediately - stopping the entire  
application freezing up when executing a lengthy shell script or  
AppleScript.

I know there are workarounds with shell scripts - piping the output  
to a text file and checking that in a loop - but for AppleScript your  
only current options involve running a separate application in the  
background. :-(
