I'm currently using:
			tell the current application to set front_app to my name
		on error
			-- not sure why that doesn't work from TeXShop, so set it here:
			set front_app to "TeXShop"
		end try

This seems to work fine.
What I'm trying to figure out now is how to get the scripts to compile 
and run from within one of these applications without opening the other 
application to access its applescript dictionary.

(the alternative is to release two copies of the script, one for 
TeXShop and one for iTeXMac)
