I obviously need to do better here: just right-click/control-click a
command bar. The pop-up menu lets you select any existing command to assign
to that command bar. You can create new named commands by selecting New
Command... at the top of the menu. Note: I just now noticed that you have
to have at least one control selected for this to work. I'll fix that in an

I thought about this, but I thought the overall "color things based on
whether they have a script/behavior" was more important, but I'll take a
look and see how tough this would be to work in.

Good eye -- no, they weren't before, but I added that additional level of
indent because of allowing multiple targets. It would be easy enough to

Definitely agreed, it was just the lack of/need for interface inspiration
and a desire to work on something else/laziness. But yes, editing the prefs
is the only way at present to clean up the list display list.
