I have avoided applescript to this point in my life.  Can you give a
syntactic overview of the language?

What I had in mind was prefix-oriented, with a few concessions to my
tendancy to make random typos.  I'll try to post it in the next few days,
and I'm sorry I haven't yet gotten it to a point where it is suitable for
public ridicule.
