I am in 100% agreement.  Now I have a question about displaying the
licensing terms within LiveCode.  Once the library stacks are in place
and accessible from the Development > Image Library menu, wouldn't it
be nice if the stack itself had a link to the webpage of the original
work?  Or, to open the associated folder containing the licenses?
Also, when you insert an icon from a library into a stack, it would be
a pretty cool feature to have a comment of credit automatically
inserted at the top of the stack or card script.
