roll back

For several reasons, I've decided to roll back to Stellarium 0.9.x for my upcoming RASC The Sky This Month presentation. The primary reason is scripts. In order to be able to rapidly simulate and show certain events at particular dates and times, I need to be able to use scripts. And since these are not yet implemented in a stable release of version 0.10.x, my hand is forced. A lesser reason is that I'm simply more comfortable with 9. I've more seat time with it, I know the keyboard shortcuts, I can work quickly in it. And the more I think about it, I should not use a beta product in a demonstration. I don't want anything crashing suddenly... So, I uninstalled 10 from the laptop and reloaded 9. All the scripts I built on John Smallberries worked fine. Sweet.
