iOS scrollers

We shouldn't be scripting scrollers.

If the control we placed on the card scrolls, it should scroll.  Doesn't 
matter if it's Mac or Windows or Linux.  Shouldn't matter if it's iOS or 

Manually typing an interaction overlay is bizarre savagery better left 
for those with a typing fetish than developers who want to be productive 
using visual development tools like LiveCode.

That this has not been addressed in the product -- even as so many of us 
have scripted libraries to take care of this automatically in script -- 
has always been concerning.

And as we approach the 10th anniversary of iPhone, that this has never 
been taken care of, or even put on a road map, the concern has grown.

Vision, anyone?
