That's That Aspect.

Hi, all,

Well, I searched high and low, and couldn't find a generally accepted term
for an aspect that conveys the idea of "from now on/from then

So I christened my aspect [insert opening notes of "Also Sprach
Zarathustra"/2001:  A Space Odyssey theme song here] "trans-habitual."   The
"trans-" is the "trans-" of change, as in "transexual," "transform,"
"transmogrify," and "translative case."  I thought this might be a good name
for an aspect that conveys a change in the class of events that happen
always, usually, or regularly.

If anyone has any reason why this name should not be wedded to this aspect,
let her--or him-- speak now!

Insufferably pleased with myself,
