As a Rev user who has been learning Director recently, I have to say  
that the hybrid nature of Lingo is an absolute pain for legibility  
after using a 'pure' xtalk such as Transcript. If it was all dot  
syntax it would be fine, if it was all xtalk it would be fine - but  
my brain does not cope well with both at once.
