Korakot mentions wysiwyg creation of simple scripts.
I created a script generation page that would fit into that category:
It's not completely finished yet, and I'm still looking into modifying
GreaseMonkey to support installing scripts from a "data:" url (so
there is no server code to generate the script).
It only supports a specific familly of scripts ("insert template html
after matched link"), but if you can think of other recurring pattern
of user script, I'd be happy to discuss them too.
