Call for testers: v7 migration tool

One of the things that had held me back from spending more time with v7 
was the need to manually choose File-Save As to save a stack in older 
formats.  I often need this for tools and other files I use across 
multiple versions.

I recently discovered that the LiveCode IDE uses a custom property named 
cREVGeneral["stackFileFormat"] to change the stackFileFormat when saving 
using its File-Save.

Oh so convenient.

So to make it even more convenient I took a moment to make a tool that 
lets me set that property easily for any mainstack I have open:

Download, unzip, and put in your Plugins folder.

Let me know if you find any issues with it.
