Explicit Variables again

Hi Richard,
I think perhaps I didn't explain what I am trying to achieve very well.

I certainly don't want to force anyone except me into using explicit vars,
or strict compile mode, or whatever the correct term is, but I do want to
use them when developing on my computer.  The scheme I had in mind would
only come into play if the stack was not running as a plugin and it
was running on my computer (although I haven't figured out the best way to
check the latter).  I just want to find a controlled way of switching in
and out of strict compile mode, stack by stack and without having to
remember which stacks I want to be in that mode.

I think this is probably at the point where it would be faster to set the
Strict Compile mode preference to true and spend a few hours converting all
my stacks.  The one thing that would really help in that regard is if there
was a way to have the compile/Apply function list all the errors it found
instead of stopping at the first one, but I'm sure that can't be done.
