Yes you're right. If there's no "break", the case will fall through to the
next case. I use this to provide different options to the end user.

Excellent question, and unfortunately one I can't remember! :-)

I remember putting it into the code for others that may want to use the
option, but I never have. And after looking on Microsoft's site, it looks
like it may be no longer an option. So just ignore it for now.

To be honest, I know so little about Python that I didn't know if you can
execute Python code in a similar way as VB Script. Do you know if it can?
I'd love to extend stsDoScript, but don't know what needs to be done.
