Ahh, thanks.

But now I'm confused, because I've been switching back-and-forth  
between versions:

Wing 3.0.3 doesn't do introspection on appscript in the editor window.  
Is that generally true or did I screw up a setting? Does it have  
anything to do with appscript being an 'egg'? It is in /Library/Python/ 
2.5/site-packages, which is in my python path.

Unfortunately introspection in the debug window is one of my favorite  
things about Wing 3! In using appscript, introspection is a wonderful  
help; the applications I'm connecting to, such as Adobe's InDesign,  
have an enormous number of functions and properties, and introspection  
is my favorite way to confirm syntax. The Adobe documentation is for  
AppleScript and the python syntax is different.
