That's what I do too, and have been for years. I've got a custom plugin 
that inserts both front and back scripts. My frontscript has all sorts 
of custom menu and script editor triggers. My backscript contains 
development handlers that automate some common tasks I do often, which I 
call from the message box. I've been tinkering with it for years, it's a 
mess, but it's my mess and I love it.

The stack is set in the plugins settings to open invisibly. There's a 
handler on the first card that inserts the scripts when it opens and 
removes them when it closes (but I never close it.) I forget it's there 
but I'm lost without it.

This kind of thing is really easy to do and you can make it into 
anything you need. You can add a handler at any time and it is instantly 
available everywhere.
