Just to clarify, that 10% rule only applies to candidates for the script showcase. It might also apply to making topics sticky.
I, for one, think this deviates from the de facto maxim for Chris' decisions - "10% of site visitors".
To be honest, I know very little about ActiveX, com objects, and such. However, my overall impression is that they are not difficult to learn and apply. Others in the past have asked for support for inline VBScript, and certainly something like DLLCall would be quite useful to power users (perhaps akin to Rajat's SendMessage Tutorial).
I'm assuming that a large percentage, if not a majority, of the people reading this don't have a clue either, or if they do, they don't care about [ActiveX] in regard to AutoHotkey.
In short, I have an interest in these features but lack the experience to implement them quickly. That's why I tend to procrastinate them and work on others that have a larger benefit, such as expressions.
