Hi John,
I was hoping that would work too, but it doesn't seem to in my testing.  I
set up two front scripts, each with  a handler with a
revHookBuildScriptEditorContextMenu in it and a pass statement at the end
but only one of them was executed.

 I think it's because it's not a built-in LC message, just something that
is dispatched from the script editor mouseDown handler ,so the first
handler to see it is executed then control goes right back to the statement
after the dispatch.

Same problem occurs with the revHookScriptEditorContextMenuPick handling.

Hope I'm wrong but don't think so :-)
