Imagine a world in which HyperCard had been open sourced 20 years ago?

Ken - I talked to Hugh about doing this work before going off to the states.
I am back now, and quite happy to mirror "Scripter's Scrapbook" to the web
backend I've got up - if Hugh is still up for that.

 OK - lets give it a try. The web site is up, but I figure it is of little
use until it is integrated into the script editor which is partly done...
I'll work on that now. I guess a question is which library to get up first -
I'll dig up the list of existing libraries and see which one people would
like most to be worked on?
