There's a difference in terms of the primary execution object, and how 
that effects the flow of both execution and the workflow.

It seems I'm unable to articulate it clearly enough, but no worries. 
The bottom line is that LC Server scripts are incompatible with LC 
Script on the desktop, and when used with wrapped HTML there's no need 
for me to generalize my tools because they can't be used in that context.
