      Oh, pTool is definitely pScript friendly, in fact you don't need
      pedit at all for pScripting, can do with pTool alone. Relevant
      pToolSet modules are pScriptTool, pScriptButtons, and pScriptPad, as
      well as the functions (buttons, strokes, taps, and SpecActIds)
      available through pToolSet preferences. If pTool is on you can launch
      pScripts a bunch of ways, and certainly (I think), a pScript launch
      could be built into the kind of module (pFormTool?) you've described.
