Well; as there has been a lot of stuff vented ever since Livecode went 
Open Source about
users contributing by hacking various aspects of the IDE one of the most 
USEFUL bits of
information RunRev could give us ("throw me a fricking bone here.") 
would be how to
ADD properties to existing objects.

Making new objects out of compounded existing objects is, to my mind at 
least, less urgent than
how to add props to existing ones.

Of course, whether this can be done in Livecode itself, or one has to go 
back to the GIT hub
and mess around in C++ I don't know. Although something tells me that if 
Livecode is a really
flexible language that can stand on its "own two feet" it shouldn't be 
necessary to use another
language to modify it.
