I don't think so... it appears to me that ApplescriptObjC allows you to use
AppleScript (mostly) within Xcode to create applications instead of using
Objective C through the use of a custom application framework. It doesn't
appear that executing special applescript from LiveCode is going to be able
to make use of that framework - at best you'd still be trying to
control/communicate with another app - just one build with AppleScript
instead of Objective C.

But that's just my initial take on it...
