Script Editor fixable? (was: Configuring a Sublime Text project to notify LiveCode IDE about updates to script only stacks)

Trevor, in his (L)evure framework (which is what brought the original topic
up that inspired this thread) developed a way to get the LC IDE to act as a
server/listener and ST to broadcast every time a .livecodescript file is
edited.  LC then unloads and reloads the .lcs file (whether it is a front
or backscript, library, behavior, etc.), causing it to be updated live, as
if it had been edited in the LC SE.

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."
