Colin, you are an incredibly handy person to know. :) What a stroke of 
luck that you were there exactly when the new policy changes were released.

Thank you.

Without naming the tool, I described how a LiveCode app might download new scripts, and how it wasn’t compiled code, but it just wasn’t JavaScript. He seemed think that would be ok.
