Request: Add "Hook to New" to AppleScript dictionary

I would like to add some functionality on top of the “Hook to New” function by wrapping the call in AppleScript. Is there a way to do that or do you need to add it to the AppleScript dictionary for Hook?

Hook to New is currently not exposed in AppleScript dictionary because it’s not an atomic operation. There’s a default Hook to New which is non interactive, and a version of Hook to New that brings up. a menu where you choose what you want to hook to. That could be automated with Keyboard Maestro at this point. Seems like a candidate for when Hook supports automation with Shortcuts.

having said that, of course AppleScript has advantages over Shortcuts.
