Future Updates:
1. More rigging and pipeline related methods will be added to asNode

This node is the key module in maya rigging process. One node for the most of the rigging process.
asNode is still going to include many general methods required for rigging / animation process.
It played key role in hyper skinning system as shown in below video:
asNode was developed with the inspiration from PyNode in PyMel, But with extended support to Rigging process.
And this doesn't depend on PyNode in PyMel. Its purely depends only on Maya api and maya.cmds.
Apply asNode on any maya node and then start using following methods:

Copy 'asNode.pyc' to the following location:C:\Documents and Settings\User\My Documents\maya\2014\scripts

Usage of Script:
create two spheres named 'pSphere1' and 'pSphere2'
And then, Run these commands from python window

from asNode import *
p2 =asNode('pSphere2')
asN =asNode('pSphere1')

#_ That's it, then start using:
asN.snapPivTo(p2)   #_ Now pSphere1's pivot is at 'pSphere2'


Create any maya poly object or locator then try this command
from asNode import *
node =asN._selected()[0]   #_ asN is short form for selecting selected objects..
node.rename('Ball')            #_ Rename to 'Ball'
node.addSuffix('_Sph')       #_ Now it adds '_Sph' suffix to the ball, But still node is updated with all these changes
