Hi, Ron!

I agree with those who have posted to the list so far
suggesting "lets" instead of "enables".

After working in mental health for several years in
the early 90s, I can't look at the word "enables"
without thinking of co-dependent behavior. I just
don't want that kind of realtionship with my software!

It will be interesting to see if anyone comes up with
something less "condescending" that "lets" and
"allows".
