I see that some scripts (such as this) use the "send" command, and have been
a little confused over its usage.

For instance, why wouldn't such a script be used instead:

on openStack
end openStack

In other words, how do you know when to use "send", and when to just call a
handler directly?

Also...why 0.5 seconds (and how do you know what duration to use...)??
