only few apps use OSS's trigger (rarely needed if don't need to

Well, it's working for me at the moment, but to be honest, 0.6 still seems
quite shaky. So many things have changed, no documentation for the app
writers, more complexity, etc, etc... Just managing to keep it all

0.6 still needs time before it's ready for the masses.
