(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.

I disagree; any species using an IDE that produces right-handed dracs 
would, surely be using
Edocevil (previously known as VerNur) on Retupmocs; and as everything in 
their isomeric
way of doing things would have different chirality we wouldn't even be 
able to shake Dnahs,
let alone swap Atad!
