Ha… one of the reasons I thought about overloading long ID is because pointer
and handle aren’t very LiveCode… Maybe reference:
get the reference of <object>
Using such a reference to a deleted object would need to throw an error I think.
People would need to understand that you couldn’t use such references in
delimited lists. So if you wanted a list of object references you would need to
use an array.
FWIW the ScriptObject in LCB is basically what I’m talking about but as a
regular script value type.
