At the risk of sounding mind-blowingly stupid (hey, recently I've done 
that several times, so one more time
shouldn't hurt that much) I would be really very grateful indeed if 
someone could exlplain in very simple terms what including Infinite 
LiveCode capability actually means.

Come to think of things, there may be other people "out there" who don't 
really understand that either.
