Simple .lc Script to INSERT data...?

I use Jacque's scriptPaint handler instead of explicitVariables -- just set the insertion point, then hover over a word in a script, press shift-control-space (my script shortcuts are all shift-control-<key>), and presto, the mouseword is copied and placed into the insertion point. End of misspelling variable names.
