I should probably add this to the AS scripting dictionary. Three 
reasons why an environment variable doesn't strike me as good: 1) too 
troublesome to work with lists that way, 2) no meta-data available for 
items, 3) project drawer should switch to lazy loading of folder 
contents, which would require a full traversal of all the folders in 
the source list each time a command were to be executed.

I'm probably going to add a very limited scripting dictionary real soon 
now, just to get the ball rolling (I'm thinking initially mainly to 
control the caret, and I could add this as well, since it shouldn't 
require that much thought to get it right).
