Hmm, I don't think so. This should be fairly transparent. Of course, in
the end you need to be wrapping your code into functions that can be
called, but this shouldn't take too much work. Other than that, I think
the current script types (standalone, hook) will still be supported as
they are just so easy for script developers. Current plans see an
additional script type (Jonathan proposed "library" on GC, IIRC). That
will require all code to be wrapped in functions and to call some TW
initialization routines. But all of this is just in our heads ATM ;).

It looks fairly stable to me, and it's already in the official
repository (since r627). This means we're not going to remove it again
lightly. It also means that it's not yet available to people who use
prebuilt binaries on Windows/Mac (we're still at r567 there).
