This would be a great enhancement to have this additional data. Once of
the beautiful things about LiveCode is that many of the messages have
optional parameters (new size with resizeStack, mouseButtonNumber with
mouseDown/mouseUp/etc. and so on. If you don't need them, you just
ignore them, but they are always there when you do need them. It is an
underrated 'feature' of the language that makes it so easy to use.
