    Creating and actor without the KeplerDocumentation Attribute is as simple
as creating a new Java coded actor and adding to a workflow using the
Tools/Instantiate Component menu item. I originally did this with the
AscGridValue actor, but I think Kirsten has now added the documentation.

    Another actor(s) that you can load is/are the Python actors (which are
currently in the Kepler src but not in the the actor library. From Kepler, you
can just open a Ptolemy moml file to instantiate the actors. Open
$PTII/ptolemy/actror/lib/python/python.xml. This should create a workflow with
2 actors - PythonActor and PythonScript. These actors have no documentation

   I am particulatrly interested in these actors because I am hoping to add
them to Kepler with documentation. (I have been getting better acquainted with
Python/Jython and think that adding such scripting actors to Kepler would be
useful for a lot of users.)
