Hi Bruce - actually the existing Transform / Array / Curve command is able to apply those same kinds of functions along a path.

When you use that array on curve command, the extent is fixed to be the length of the curve.

If you enter an item count, the offset distance will be calculated for you.

On the other hand if you enter an offset distance, the item count is automatically calculated for you by fitting as many objects as possible along the curve, its similar to the way as shown with the new options for Array Dir.

But there isn't currently a way to interactively adjust the offset distance by clicking on the curve, you just have to enter different values to adjust it instead of by dragging with the mouse. Tomorrow I'll take a look at what is involved in adding that, it may actually not be very difficult for me to add that in there. If I could add that it would then give Array curve the same kind of interactive adjustment feel.
