### Why doesn’t chording work for any other commands?

[This is a limitation of the acme(4) event system.](https://github.com/9fans/plan9port/issues/165)
A client program can _receive_ events with chorded arguments,
but it cannot send them back to Acme.
(It could write them to the `event` file, but Acme would ignore them.)
As a result, for a client program to support chorded arguments
to builtin or external commands,
it would have to reimplement the execution logic of Acme.
