comment Raise/lower/move/resize windows with mouse + modifier keys
@Lri, that opinion is fine, but in my opinion lowering is incredibly useful - one of the most important of the above requirements.

comment Count the number of open windows
OK, so tell application "System Events" to get UI elements enabled returns true, but the error above still happens, even with adding the enabler line you suggest to the beginning.

comment Count the number of open windows
OK, so I paste that into the AppleScript editor and I get: 'error "System Events got an error: Access for assistive devices is disabled."' How do I enable it? For applications that I've installed previously that needed this, the app itself prompts me. "Enable access for assistive devices" is enabled in my system preferences.

comment Should I stick with programming on my Apple or switch to Linux?
Interesting that you like the Mac for the window management! I'm the exact opposite - on Linux my window management is insanely great (FVWM2) while the Mac is terrible. I suppose that speaks to someone else's earlier comment that much of it is personal preference.

Thanks - Zooom does move/resize but not raise/lower or maximizing. I did submit a feature request.

Thanks - unfortunately BTT doesn't activate until mouse-up; I'm looking for mouse-down. I'll clarify the question.

comment Concisely starting Mac OS apps from the command line
OK, this works. It does break on apps with an apostrophe (and presumably other funny chars in the name). I riffed on your solution and did something similar in Python, which I'll post in another answer - though if that's not the right etiquette, I'm happy to add it to your answer instead (or whatever).

comment What does “plays” really count in iTunes?
Thanks all. This one matches my observed behavior the closest, so I marked it accepted - I believe I've stopped a podcast with something like 20-30 seconds to go, and it's counted as a play. That's more consistent with a percentage than straight time ("the last few seconds").

comment What does “plays” really count in iTunes?
This doesn't match my observed behavior: I can exit a podcast near, but not at, the end, and it still counts a play.
