Thanks. Yeah, I saw a flurry of email notices.

I also saw the email notice on the fact that we can expect a lot more 
submodules in the future to deal with widgets. Not something I'm looking 
forward to.

It appears to be written as a script-only stack for LC8. Since I ran 
this in LC6.7.5, I just copied the script minus the first line into the 
card script. That almost ran properly, only causing a harmless error on 
the final line of the preOpenCard handler. If I would have moved the 
preOpenCard handler into the stack script that would have worked.

But it otherwise did the job on linux.
