The merge function is similar, but just different enough to prevent us 
from using it to test LC Server scripts in the LC IDE.  :(

If anyone else here would find that useful perhaps I could submit a 
request for that.  I'm thinking maybe something like:

   put merge( tSomeStuff, "server") into tModifiedStuff

...where "server" is a flag that determines which merge style should be 

Or would it be simpler as a separate function, maybe something like:

  put serverMerge( tSomeStuff ) into tModifiedStuff

Suggestions on that?

It would be so nice if we could find some way to overcome the 
incompatibilities between LC Server and how LC normally handles scripts 
so we could debug as we write (the xTalk way!).
