Right now there's no way to know what the user typed (from Transcript, that
is), and as you identified, you can't do anything with frontscripts because
this is a standard OS dialog box.
I think going down the path of a feature request would be a good one. I mean
you can set the path that a dialog opens to, but you can't get one back.
The only other approach would be to create a custom modal stack that acted
like a real dialog box, but that's a real PITA.
