Which is too bad, I use OS X, and I'd like to be able to script it with

is some good news there.

Actually, AppleScript is a really interesting concept. You should give
it a try. I'm sorry to hear that Apple is phasing it out (something
I suspected).

Chris: so are they (you) going to provide reasonable hooks to make
applications _javascript_able the way they are currently applescriptable?
Is there some information publicly available somewhere?

Please don't use me as a source of (mis)information about AppleScript! I really know nothing about it. I just know that we have a big push to use _javascript_ in many visible places. Applications are scriptable because they use OSA:

    AppleScript Overview: Open Scripting Architecture

AppleScript is just one implementation of OSA. A third party makes a _javascript_ OSA plugin to allow this today:

    _javascript_ for the Macintosh

Will Apple build this in someday? I have no idea.
