I would just like to second Kelly’s comments - I took that exact advice many many moons ago and never ever was I tempted to go back at any point thereafter :)

Studio notation provides almost everything you need to replace Load from list, Add line to list, Build list, Sort list, etc.  and you'll never have to use Set current list in a reversible block again, or care about which one's current.
