This might need a new thread title.

If you have this in a button script:

on mouseUp
    put "single"
    wait 15
    put "" --just to see it work
end mouseup

on mouseDoubleUp
    put "double"
    wait 15
    put "" --just to see it work
end mouseDoubleUp

you can get all sorts of behaviors if you click at various rates. Sometimes 
you even get what you want, that is, a single response to a double click. 
This takes practice and luck, though, and that seems contrary to clean, 
robust programming methodology.

Jim, can you elaborate on your idea of passing mouseup? How and where would 
you do that?
