As far as I know, LC includes all the scripted paint commands that HC had, 
and adds native color besides. The stacks I've imported that used painting 
commands worked with few changes, mostly only needing to slow them down due 
to LC's faster engine and more modern CPUs.

The OP wants to emulate MacPaint, so image size limitations probably won't 
be an issue.
