Carbon stores that info in its aete resources. You could try to get a 
somewhat human readable version of that using DeRez (which is installed 
along with XCode).

The following command should yield the desired results:

DeRez /Applications/BBEdit/Contents/Resources/BBEdit.rsrc 
/Developer/Headers/FlatCarbon/*.r -useDF -only 'aete' > 

Note that the Rez input is rather different from the .scriptSuite and 
.scriptTerminology files for Cocoa.
