Hi -

Jens and I just agreed on entering a public testing phase for that
change. That means that this one is now the default Object Editor. The
preivous OE is available in PartsBin/Tools/ObjectEditorLegacy. Please
report any defects, or fix them ;).

The rationale here is that the old OE was not able to retrieve a
script's original source correctly i.e. in Firefox. Comments in the
source would not appear any more. The new OE now also stores the
original JS source with each script.
Also, it removes the syntactical noise of 'this.addScript'.

Good luck & have fun,
