	I have been wondering if there might be a way to only show command
results and text explicitly displayed in the log file (or in the
Results window in certain cases), rather than all the commands as well.
  Conceptually (I think), a -log- file with the contents of -cmdlog-
stripped out.  I haven't been able to track down any ado files that
might achieve that goal....

	... but this clever trick seems to accomplish more or less what I had
in mind.  I never would have thought of it myself.  Thanks!
