#wait
I don't miss the "wait" handler in HTML5 and I wouldn't miss it in LC Script.
I even don't know of any use case where "send in <time>" (which works perfectly
in HTML5) isn't superior to "wait". Especially when connected to move/animation.

Also I don't miss "wait" in LC Builder. There OnTimer() is the superior
'substitute'.

@Jonathan
And your 'syncing' skills, demonstrated several times, show that you dont need
it. It's sometimes comfortable to write "wait 1 millisec with messages", but
nothing more, it is not an essential command.

Jonathan, please think about such nasty national statements. There's no need
for that.
