Nothing to worry about, Richmond.  LiveCode Script and LiveCode Builder 
are different languages for different purposes.

As an extensibility subsystem, LC Builder benefits from being more 
restrictive, hopefully one day compilable to machine language.  Its role 
is as a replacement for things that might otherwise require C, not for 
things that would be done in LiveCode Script.

As the main glue for brining components together and building apps, 
LiveCode Script will retain its essential flavor.
