Actually Richmond I was weaselling out  of stating categorically that the
cross platform player object "will" be a widget because I was too lazy to
confirm what I believed.  Tiemo was not engaged in fuzzy thinking but rather
reading between the lines suspecting that what I really wanted to say "I
know" but that I didn't want to put the time in to back up my assertion. So
it was I who introduced the fuzziness.  

So thus chastened I have looked it up again to confirm.
It was from the following LiveCode Blog post.

"Cross browser player object

So what I don't know is when the cross browser player object will be
delivered and I agree it would be nice to get an update on the road map from
LiveCode to show what has been completed and what is in the various threads.
