I like the idea of integrating the PB/AB with the script editor. One feature
I think would be useful as part of this integration would be the ability to
right click on the name of an object in the script editor and have a
contextual menu come up with a 'go to object' menu item that would hilite
the object in the PB/AB pane of the script editor just as when right
clicking on a handler you get the 'go to definition' menu item.  There could
also be a 'go to object script' menu item that would open the script of the
object in the editor.  This would be useful with send or dispatch commands
to be able to jump to the script of the object that it was being dispatched
