Absolutely - I was responding narrowly to the particular point from Roland's 
email which I quoted: namely that LiveCode should return an error message when 
it fails to read a file because it doesn't have enough memory, rather than 
returning exactly the same results as it would for an empty file... which is 
what the cited RQCC report has been complaining about for at least seven years.
