Hi Sannyasin,

Your assumption is correct: you can provide the
'heavier' framework and let them make their own
10-line scripts. They will not be able to change the
longer scripts, but these will work just fine -- as
long as there are no syntax errors ;-)
Only MetaCard and/or Runtime Revolution can explain
about the legal details of course, but technically
it's feasible. Though as Bill Gray pointed out, that
limit may seriously hinder performance.

Hope this helped nonetheless,
