Single script fetching of both name and address?

When custom scripts are being used, the code required to fetch a name can often duplicate the code required to fetch an address.

When the name and code string cost a lot of duplicated Apple Events to separately retrieve, this can slow down the opening of the Hook dialog.

Might it be possible to find a way to return both name and address from a single custom script, returning both in a key:value record, for example, or binding both to a pair of reserved names ?

(in the meanwhile, if there is a consistent pattern to the order in which Get Name and Get Address are evaluated, the second of them might, I guess, be able to retrieve a second value left waiting for it in the clipboard by the first script. A little fragile though.)

Thanks for the suggestion, Rob. That seems feasible at this point. We’ll take some measures and discuss the idea internally. There’s lots in the pipeline.
