Seriously. But the good news is that it's not that much trouble to recreate your stacks in Livecode, and frankly, given that Hypercard was card driven, meaning if you wanted to display different data on a similar form you simply created a new card and filled in the data, and given that Livecode is decidedly NOT optimized to run this way, recreating your app in Livecode seems to be the way to go anyway.
