Very well put indeed.

I didn't start with HC: I gave up computer programming for good
because I really couldn't be bothered with Pascal, FORTRAN and so on.

It was HC that got me going again.

I took side trips to Toolbook and so on, but
when I found LiveCode I felt I had 'come home', and
I am, effectively, a one-trick pony nowadays.

LiveCode used to claim (c.f. RR 1.1.1 handbook) that the whole of
LiveCode was constructed in LiveCode . . . therefore, surely, we can
also do further construction?
