I should clarify that I do too. The Home stack is currently a necessity
in any IDE, so the impact in memory would not change. And in keeping
with MetaCard's central mandate, "Do No Harm", I can't imagine why any
Home stack would need any frontScripts or backScripts. HC never
supported either feature, and we needn't much up any new Home stack with
them. It should be simple and self-contained, far simpler than
RevOnline and, unlike RevOnline, open source for user modification.
