LiveCode, Legacy and . . .

  Created a fairly pedestrian stack in LiveCode and saved it in
"legacy format"; resulting in a stack of unknown provenance
with the .livecode suffix . . .

. . . in changing the suffix to .rev I was able to open the stack
with RunRev 2.2.1

Livecode is doing what is often termed a "half-cock job" when
it saves in "legacy format" ; it should, surely, provide a .rev suffix.


Of course to be completely backwards compat. it should offer other
saving options such as:

1. 'Standard'; i.e. with the .livecode suffix

2. 'Last Month' (or somesuch) with the .rev suffix

3.  'Legacy' with both the legacy format and the .rev suffix.

Mind you things might be better if a 4.5.1 version was released
that went back to the .rev suffix.
