Project Browser vs App Browser (was "script scope variables inexplicably becoming unset")

Thanks for the input Bill.

I think it would be hard for me to sell lcStackBrowser on the basis of
video/screenshots, although I do have some old videos of the product in
use.  It has so many features and functionality that the video would be too
long or I'd have to come up with fairly large number of short videos.

I think perhaps the free, feature reduced version might be the way to go
but deciding which ones to leave out would be the challenge there.

I'll figure something out.
