I am not an applescript expert, but I believe this is exactly the same 
BTW, if it is not, there should be only minor differences such that 
both syntax should definitely be implemented,

I had a look at the insides of BBEdit's applescript dictionary when I 
started applescript implementation.
Nothing was really targeted towards TeX and there was some problems
