It just dawned on me that, maybe it's not a good idea to create a popup having a dependency on an item in aliases.ini, since the give-ops command would stop working if aliases.ini got restored to an older version. The min/max aliases are simple enough that the give-ops command could change $min($0,$modespl) to instead be:

$gettok($sorttok($0 $modespl,32,n ),1,32)

Even if the popups isn't changed, the example aliases in aliases.ini is something that could be updated. The last time they were updated is probably earlier than the last time the favorites list was updated. Yay #windows95
