My (limited) understanding is that when working in acme(1), one can
keep a file of commands - like this one - open in a window, and the
commands can then be invoked from the editor with various mouse
chordings, or something, so one doesn't have to 'leave' the editor
to run the commands. So the question now might be, who is using
acme and how did their local reference file end up in the tree?
