No verification, but I've always felt your comment below re:Director is 
why Apple let Hypercard languish in the first place, never gave it even 
decent color, etc.  HC's rep was so tarnished by all the unsightly crap 
put out there by "the rest of us"  that they didn't want it associated 
in any professional context with their upscale brand identity.  Sure, 
there  were nuggets of gold among the piles of HyperCard coal, but even 
they were covered in black (and white) dust and hard to find.
