Good for you Brian,

>For fun, try inserting this as a front script:

I played a little yesterday with a "put put" stack with a button that 
would get the script of a selected object, change each occurrence of 
"x = something" to "put something into x".

The handler worked fine; but the Script Editor wouldn't close a 
script containing "x = something"...unless it was in parentheses.

Your solution allows any developer to implement any short hand 
notation that can be converted to Revolution syntax.

So vive Brian for a method that lets every developer use notation 
with which she is comfortable without bastardizing Revolution's 
xTalk.  Truly better than what the establishment is doing, me thinks.
