But when we finally make contact with another intelligent species, will we discover that all their cards are right-handed? (It goes with out saying that such a species will necessarily be using LiveCode.) If so, then importing any of their cards might result in the stack disappearing in a flash of high-energy photons.... That problem will be one of the knottiest the LC development team has had to tackle.
