[TxMt] open terminal and environment

So I happened to notice that when I use the Shell Script bundles  
"Open Terminal" that my project environment variables don't appear.

According to this tech note:


osascript (which is what the "Open Terminal" command uses to tell  
Terminal.app to open a window) passes its environment along, which  
contains the project variables.

Is this a limitation of using "do script" instead of "do shell script"?

The only work around I can think of is to explicitly set the  
environment variables inside the "do script" (possibly exporting all  
the variables to a temporary file and then sourcing that file inside  
the "do script"). That seems icky for a variety of reasons.
