And of course, this is something everybody has been saying now since at 
least the 2nd Monterey conference.  It may not be enough to make available 
a free product that just dumps you straight into the world of scripting. 
Even Hypercard didn't do that!  It provided a very and gentle graceful 
path to the world of making your own stuff, and that is perhaps part of 
the reason for it becoming as successful as it did.
