Determine if script is running

If a beginner was asking this question, I would skip the thread and move on
because...come on.  LC is single-threaded.

HOWEVER, wait with messages brings up an interesting problem - how to tell
if a script that was waiting...with messages is waiting, or is dead,
perhaps exited.  I don't really want to do the compile/launch workaround,
because I want to be able to have Bad Things trip the debugger, which is
hard to do with standalones.

I suppose I could have the script update a global each time it begins a
wait, and then have the cron script look for that, and if we're past a
certain time, assume that the wait is over, but that assumes I don't
introduce some error, later and forget to update the variable.

On the first day, God created the heavens and the Earth
On the second day, God created the oceans.
On the third day, God put the animals on hold for a few hours,
   and did a little diving.
And God said, "This is good."
