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.
