And that's really the only unsolved part right now.
1. The script editor fix is now part of the LC8 develop branch.
2. Charles' script editor stack is now public and usable in LC6 and LC7.
3. Charles detailed the changes that need to be done in the existing 
script editor stack in his bug report.
4. I incorporated Charles' stack into my build repository, pushed, and 
submitted a pull request.

So there are now four ways to get this integrated into LC6 and LC7.

1. I guess it's too much work to backport the changes that were made to 
the LC8 stack.
3. For some reason it must be too hard to incorporate the bug report 
changes, because the filter was implemented a different way.
4. My pull request was passive-aggressively not accepted because 
"there's no way to review the changes".

That leaves #2, as in it's an exercise left to the user to incorporate 
locally, and has to be again with each new release.

This would be ridiculous if it weren't so ridiculous... an open source 
project on its third major release that still can't accept user inputs?
