Looking at Rev's AppleScript dictionary with Apple's AppleScript editor 
you'll find "do script" and "evaluate" are provided, which can provide 
the key to almost any behavior you want.

The "do script" command can be used to trigger custom handlers in your 
standalone, or just about anything else that could be done internally 
with the "do" command.

"evaluate" operates like a Transcript function: it evaluates a 
Transcript expression and returns the result.

Experiment with those and I think you may be pleased with what you can do.
