Accessing Functions in the Script of the Main Stack

The dictionary says that "start using" puts the scripts before any objects
in the back scripts.

I'm glad I learned a bit more about inserting scripts of individual objects
though.  My current library has about 5000 lines of code in it and
navigating around it in the script editor is a pain.  The handlers can be
broken down into 5-6 logical groups so I'm thinking it might be worth my
while to put each group into buttons on a card in the library stack and
insert them individually instead of linking them with "start using".
