This is on the feature request list as object frontscripts and 
backscripts. It would allow you to set the backscript of any of the 
buttons anywhere to a common script. The backscript would offer shared 
behavior for all the buttons. I think this feature might even be on the 
schedule for inclusion in an upcoming release of Revolution.
