Hi Michael,

If I understood well, these messages from January 2011, talk about
recreating binary stacks from XML sources. This should be similar to
compiling binaries from text sources. Ask to Mark Wieder about his
livecode software for Version Control...

Yep, you can all thank me for lobbying to get this implemented. If you 
don't absolutely need this feature (and it's pretty obvious that since 
nobody noticed its appearance that nobody really needs it) then don't 
mess with it. Please. You can get into all sorts of trouble. It is 
indeed the pistol-and-map-to-foot syndrome. But it's absolutely 
essential for version control and had to be implemented at the engine

Have a nice weekend!
