Oh, that's too flattering but I wouldn't call it an "engineering" task, I
merely tested it and looked at the code to detect anything problematic :)
As I said, I don't see any reason to not include it, and since I don't want
to miss the deadline for the second beta I'll just go ahead and commit your
change set (I only renamed the Player category "scratch" to include all
this methods in the same ScratchConnect package).
