   How about this handler in the stack script:

on CheckModKeys
  set the ShiftState of this stack to the shiftKey
  set the OptionState of this stack to the optionKey
  set the CommandState of this stack to the commandKey
  set the ControlState of this stack to the controlKey
  send "CheckModKeys" to me in 25 milliseconds
  # if 40 updates per second is too quick or too slow for you,
  #   change "25" to an appropriate number
end CheckModKeys

   Start this puppy rolling in the openStack or preOpenStack handler, and 
whenever you need to know the state of a modifier key in ANY handler, refer to 
the appropriate "WhateverState of this stack" property.
   Sound like a usable workaround?
