I have tried grabbing 'the result' in logging functions, but found I  
needed to pass it as a parameter.  In most cases, I get the result in  
the line following the command that generated it.

I'm not sure, but I think 'the result' is set to empty at the _start_  
of handlers and of some built-in functions and commands.

Note this:
on mouseUp
   put the result
end mouseUp

on test
   put f(5) into z
   put 2    into y
end test

function f x
   return x+x
end f
Upon click 10 is put into the message box.
