Trevor, in his (L)evure framework (which is what brought the original topic up that inspired this thread) developed a way to get the LC IDE to act as a server/listener and ST to broadcast every time a .livecodescript file is edited. LC then unloads and reloads the .lcs file (whether it is a front or backscript, library, behavior, etc.), causing it to be updated live, as if it had been edited in the LC SE.
