Okay. I've not any experience with any of that but I can always take a

Okay, thanks.

Well, I can see how you don't quite know how to do it right. Reading
the documentation, I'm undecided if it's simple to do but the
explanation is complex or if it's complex to do but the explanation is
too simple. Then again, I'm not in the habit of writing shell
extensions so I don't know what other factors are involved so its
probably just really complex and poorly explained (As is the case with a
lot of MSDN it seems). However, shouldn't the request be open on the
issue tracker, though, if it's still being considered? I believe it was
marked closed and the reason was "undecided" or something along those
lines. To me, "undecided" means its open but could be closed later on.

Awesome, I was hoping it was some sort of regular expression system.
The only question I have about this now is whether or not there a
user-specific location to put the pattern? I suspect that adding it to
autolist.txt will cause it to get overwritten each time I install a new
version of TSVN. While I have no problem submitting a working
expression for inclusion with TSVN, I use a non-standard file extension
(in addition to the official one) for the language I'm going to create a
pattern for (AutoIt v3, a scripting language). I'm just curious as to
whether or not I can put my own custom extension somewhere that will
keep it from getting overwritten each time I update but will also keep
it out of the list maintained with TSVN.

Thanks for the information.
