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.
