Reading that one could wish, the LC 7 property inspector
could become upgraded to a plugin too.

And here in advance a tip for the handful of persons here who
think that *everything* new is better (there are improvements,
but also changes for the worse).

== Just try both, the oldPI and the newPI, with small stacks
and large stacks, then you don't need a listing of what is good
and what should become better with the newPI.

== And just try both, the AB and the new PB, with small stacks
and large stacks, then you don't need a listing of what is good
enough and what should become better with the PB.
