When alice starts, it loads that alice package from the jython library. These are loaded during the splash screen. Anyway, you could spawn threads during that time that would be effective during the remainder of the alice session. I am thinking of a system that would keep records of code modules called addons, and then update these and import them.
I re-read this post and I've just realised - this is almost exactly the way my addons work, although I didn't realise at the time; that being said though, I still did basically copy Zone's idea because he seemed to have given up on it, I acknowledged that and credited him and will do when I'm finished.


I've updated the Scripter again, this time in a massive way.
The surface (visible) changes include:
- Undo/Redo now works
- added undo and redo to right-click menu
- go to line now works
- reduced tab size
- added option to set custom tab size in font editor
- Alice Scripter menu help has changed

But the really big changes are inside the code. I have now made it so that the code can be used for both the object it currently is and an addon! All it takes is the change of one variable, so now both the addon and the object should be able to get updates together.
Yay , so Scripter is my latest addon for Arty-fishL Addons.

To distinguish between the object and the addon they have the following full official names:
- Object - Arty-fishL Scripter (as it was)
- Addon - Super Scripter


I have mostly moved on from Alice, but may still respond to messages if important [-]
