Some little framework addition feature requests for Real Studio

The feedback application has more than 22500 cases in the database. With something like 6000 being added with the last 12 months. But there are a lot of small things requested where I think they may only need a little work to implement, but still cause some good help to developers. And of course none of those cases would make Real Software sell more licenses. Please check this five cases and comment on them as I think they are little additions and could be added quickly to help people:
  • Please add a CONSTRUCTOR to the "RunTimeException" class case 1094
    Raising an exception with just one line is very convenient. Actual a very old feature request from 4 years ago.
  • Flag to indicate whether a debug is being run remotely case 10737
    The DebugRemoteBuild constant for extra code to be done only on debug builds with remote. Just a constant which is set to the right value while building.
  • Add tag property to memoryblock case 14479
    Especially for memory blocks which do not own the memory they refer to, a tag property would allow to keep a reference back to the object, so you can't access the memory after it has been released.
  • TextOutputStream should handle ConvertEncoding internally case 11140
    Textoutputstream could be easier to do if you have an encoding property and whenever you write a string, it could use convert encoding to match that encoding.
  • WebButton needs Cancel option and WebButton have no default property cases 15601 and 13809
    The javascript for key events is there. Why not send extra events for Enter and Esc keys?
If you have more little work framework additions, please comment.
