Are you talking about a list of places in a sim, where the user can say "Go home!" or "Go to the store!" and they go there?

Let me refine my request a bit...
I need a script for my critters that a user who buys or receives my critter can set home, then set points to go to eventually returning home.

More details..... an object that returns home.... that's all?
An object that responds by receiving commands?
What causes the objects to wander off and get lost?

Every detail matters for coding good...

The script I currently tried to use that worked in IWZ and still works in SL, just uses setpos to define a set pattern. I works in OS grids however over time it drifts where that pattern is because as I'm informed by coders when they wrote to OS to include VAR regions there's an error in the maths that causes such moving things to drift over time. I am told this will likely NEVER be fixed. Knowing Ubit's coding behavior I kinda believe this. So i figure the only way to guarantee they don't drift is to set a home point. define coordinates along the way and them make it return home at the end of those coordinates. Generally the best way I've seen this done is using dialogue boxes that write the information to notecard. Excuse me if not very clear, I am very Ill and my mind isn't as sharp as it used to be.

If drift occurs over time that suggests that the script you mention is using relative offsets to move from one position to the next. Rounding errors would then cause drift. You could avoid that entirely by making your waypoints absolute sim coordinates and using llSetRegionPos instead of llSetPos.
Your point about a start position is valid as that allows a bird for example to be rezzed and then flutter around a path that does not stray too far from its origin. The way to do that is most probably to use the start position, calculate the the resultant absolute waypoints and read them into a list, then simply use the list with suitable time delays to move the bird. the only thing i would add there is to NOT use llSleep in any way to get your delays.
Better than taking the SetPos route would be to use the generated waypoints list to drive a series of llKeyFramedMotion shifts as then you could get smooth timed movement between waypoints. That would give you almost zero drift.
