Paul - thanks for the kind words there.
I took most of your advice and updated the latest build to both github 
and the LiveCodeShare/Online/Sample Stacks... whatever that thing's called.

There's now a busy cursor for the Find Orphans feature since it's nested 
repeat loops, and there's a menu item added to the Help menu with some 
minimal help text to jog your memory. I did stop short of making it a 
new menu (vs menuItem)... I think it's more properly a subset of the 
Edit functions, but if you want to play around with it I think you'd 
have to modify the revMenuBar stack. Open to any other suggestions.

And it's MIT-licensed, by the way, so anyone can feel free to do what 
they want with it.
