Creating your own wishes requires 2.0.200.24 or greater.

To create a wish, you define a XRL.Wish.WishCommand attribute on a public method. This method should either be void or bool.

public class MyWishHandler
{
  // Handles "testwish:foo" or "testwish foo" as a wish command
  [XRL.Wish.WishCommand(Command = "testwish")]
  public static bool TestWishHandler(string rest)
  {
     Popup.Show("Matched: " + rest);
     // if we dont return true, other wishes will also parse this wish message
     return true;
  }

  // Handles "testwish" with nothing else! (no string param)
  [XRL.Wish.WishCommand(Command = "testwish")]
  public static void TestWishHandler()
  {
     Popup.Show("Matched it the short way");
     // if we return void, it assumes we handled it
  }

  // showing of non-static also!
  public int count = 0;

  // no command -- uses the method name by default!
  [XRL.Wish.WishCommand]
  public void inc()
  {
    Popup.Show(count++);
  }

  [XRL.Wish.WishCommand]
  public void dec()
  {
    Popup.Show(count--);
  }

  [XRL.Wish.WishCommand(Regex = @"other fancy match \d things"]
  public void Handle(System.Text.RegularExpression.Match match)
  {
    Popup.Show(match.Groups[0].ToString());
  }

}

The regular expression passed to the attribute is parsed using case insensitive matching.
