good tip -- thanks.  yes, with a combination like that i can probably  
get close to what i was looking for, but i still think that it would  
be a lot cleaner for TM to support this more directly.

right, which is why i was asking for a non-applescript API.

(i think what i'd *really* like is to have a lua interpreter embedded  
in TM, but in the absence of that we should be able to do almost  
everything with external programs...)
