Of course:

   put the number of lines of t into s
   split t by return
   repeat with f1 = 1 to s - 2
     put t[f1] into g1
     repeat with f2 = f1+1 to s - 1
       put t[f2] into g2
       repeat with f3 = f2+1 to s
         put t[f3] into g3
         put g1 & "," & g2 & "," & g3 & return after outvar
       end repeat
     end repeat
   end repeat

You see, no big changes with the first script. It only uses an array 
instead of the lines of a variable (25 secs faster) and outputs it to a 
var instead of to a field (40 secs faster).
