Yes. In fact it's the areas where they differ that make for a difficult
learning curve. There are features in LCB that I wish were backported to
LCS. I appreciate the team's reticence to make syntax changes to the
core xtalk language, but even as a long-time C programmer,
put tHexNumber converted from base 16 into tDecimalNumber
seems so much more readable than
put format("%02x", tHexNumber) into tDecimalNumber

Yes on all counts.
