As this list of suggestions is not TeX nor tcl specific, let me feel 
free to make a suggestion.

AppleScript implementation and user interface being separated,
I would suggest not to reinvent the wheel and adopt BBEdit scripting 
Please, don't forget that one of applescript primary goals is to stick 
as far as possible to human natural language,
which makes applescripting a tool for users, not for developers.

If a BBEdit guru could translate the above suggestion into real 
applescripts, that would definitely help users in the end.
