The concern is only the same as having to wonder whether Quicktime is
installed before playing a movie.  But to check it is easy:

Open preopenstack
  if "AppleScript" is not in the alternateLanguages then
    answer "Applescript needs to be installed for this program to function."
  end if
End preopenstack
