Even better - the mobile commands could an error rather than spitting the dummy when called from a non-mobile environment.  I usually add my own mobile get and set handlers/functions that do the environment test and then pass the necessary parameter to either mobileControlGet or mobileControlSet to minimize the number of times I need to write this sort of code.

    What about the use of mobile-only commands… needing to always wrap them in something to keep the IDE from touching.

For instance, I regularly have to fill an array with constants in an initialization routine or use a custom property array filled with constants. Is that any help? Or are you looking to make a macro processor? Or a library of common <things>? Or something else?
