However to really finish it, transcript needs to be finished too ;-) My dream of 
25yrs is the marriage of postscript and hypertalk ;-) It came close for a brief 
moment in freehand 3.1 but Altsys hated Hypercard. I know more but NDAs 
silence me. :( Please, I saw how intense oop of graphics could be with scripting. 
Its more than PDFs.
Lets do it!
