Wherefore revPropertyPalette

OK, OK; I'm behind in the race ( 4.5 ), but then, even if I had the money,
I would feel a bit queer about buying things with numbers after a second 
fullstop:

So: crack open 4.5. dp 4 and the Application browser: no revPropertypalette

[and, this is extremely UNsurprising, as I have no stack open which 
might have properties]

open a new, blank stack [ Aha, the brain is suddenly lit up with a 
strange aura ]

and, LO! one is able to open a Properties palette for that stack

[ and, any newbies lurking in these parts, pardon the slight sarcasm, 
but THIS (i.e. props
palette) is something one should have stumbled on on day 1 ]

back to "Application Browser" and there one can see, at the bottom of 
the list (ou, a fond [ excusez moi, sans accents ] as they say in 
France) "revPropertyPalette 1" created 'on-the-fly'
as it-were, from some mysteriously hidden template . . .

So, those who cannot find "revPropertyPalette" are being, at best, 
disingenuous . . .

Certainly, the 'thing', a.k.a Props palette doth not keep importuning me 
to save it; and why should it? After all, the blasted thing is just a 
different way of getting at things on the stack;
and those of you who don't appreciate the finer points of the Props 
Palette ought to take
a quick skinny at the equivalent in the "alternative" Metacard 
interface; Ouch.
And no apologies whatsoever to those who eschew the RunRev/Livecode 
interface in favour
of the Metacard one.

AND, the "purport" of this message is:

IFF the revPropertyPalette is asking you to save it things ain't as they 
should be . . . Bubba!
