Presumably this means that when/if one upgrades from macOS 10.14 to 10.15
ALL software currently installed is going to stop working as none of it 
is notarized.

This also will mean that one cannot even test one's own standalones
on any machines running macOS one has at home, and is probably going to
kill freeware dead in the water.

I suppose the first step is that LiveCode will have to notarize all IDEs
to run on 10.15 and above . . .

Running older Macs with earlier operating systems doesn't look quite
as daft as it used to.
