In any case, it's exactly the type of contextual information that I was apparently missing. It would definitely explain that it appears much more often that you'd expect if it was some random spelling mistake. Thanks for clarifying that! (and sorry for the brief OT)

And back on topic: still waiting for any responses on my mention of the airwindows stuff. Is it because they're Mac-only that nobody else mentioned them here yet? Or does anybody think they don't compare favorably to the ones mentioned? (I don't really have an opinion about that yet, since I don't have much experience with this type of plug-in yet).
