"nothing is stopping you from developing with LC versions prior to 9"

indeed: I'm refactoring, recoding, rejigging and generally have a "fun 
time" moving my Devawriter Pro
from LiveCode 4.5 (which is seriously long in the tooth) to 8.1.1

and, as long as I can get the thing to work on Windows 10 and Mac OS 
10.12 I will be
entirely happy.

The move from "set the unicodeText" to a universal "set the text" is 
Fantastic, and will keep me
very happy indeed for a very long time to come.

I cannot express how much I like not having to mess around finding 
surrogate pairs for
wierd characters up in the high planes of Unicode . . . just "Wow!"

If you use script only stacks for your code libraries, it should be fairly easy to conditionally branch for any new features you might want to make available which older versions do not support.  And if you say that this is too much trouble and you shouldn't be expected to go through all that, well then you have just made RunRev's point for them. :-)
