Hi all,

True. This approach depends on the assumption that every package
includes a command with the same name. This should be the case for many
but not necessarily all packages. In my case it works just fine, but it
might not for everyone.
I didn't know about Ben Jann and Stefan Wehrli's -adolist- so maybe
that's the more convenient and fail-safe alternative anyway.

Personally, I just copy c:\ado from one machine onto another. If you have a profile.do, you have to be careful that it works equally well on both machines. Whether that will meet the current user's needs, I don't know.
