We already edit livecode script-only-stacks on server.

The only caveat. I would imagine is to make sure the editor you use has the
correct text attributes and line termination values.  When I use Coda  or
Textmate in conjunction with Transmit, double clicking a file in the FTP
listing will launch the chosen editor, open the text in a page, and when
one saves, it saves back to the file, wherever it is, and the FTP program
keeps it all straight.  I've edited stacks on a remote server and launched
my local Livecode app this way too.

Anyway, that was long winded.  Make sure your editor puts out the right
sentence termination characters.
