Here is what I'm doing for my MLXEditor plugin. Not sure why I used 
editScript instead of revEditScript. This was all I could get to work I 

-- in the stack script
on preOpenStack
   -- ...
   -- wait for IDE to finish inserting it's scripts
   -- we need to intercept the editScript command before any other script
   send "doInit" to me in 1 sec
end preOpenStack

on doInit
   insert the script of card "frontScript" of stack "revMLXEditor" into 
   -- ...
end doInit

-- in the card "frontScript" script:
on editScript pID
   if the debugContext <> empty then
     pass editScript -- use builtin script editor/debugger
   end if
   if the shiftKey = "down" then
     pass editScript -- use builtin script editor
   end if
   -- default to external script editor
   send "doEditScript pID" to stack "revMLXEditor"
end editScript
