1. getProp control structure - Other than for implementing virtual 
properties, why would this structure ever be used?  I don't need to 
use it to access custom properties; I only have to refer to the 
custom property in a statement:

	put the essentialData of group "myGroup" into mydata

Using a getProp structure seems like an unnecessary complication.

2. The open file command has an optional _for_ form (open file for 
update | read | write | append.)   I think I understand what each 
form does, but what is the default?  If I simply use "open file 
<filename>" does it open "for update" by default?
