  Using Python and AppleScript Together
Subject:   Shorter alias

Instead of

alias ose='open /Applications/AppleScript/Script\ Editor.app/'

Wouldn't it be easier to use

alias ose='open -a "Script Editor"'

Then it doesn't really matter where Script Editor is located at; I'm pretty sure 'open -a' works on stuff not directly in the root of the /Applications folder.

Granted, it's probably six of one, half dozen of another, since I doubt Apple's likely to move the Script Editor anytime soon.
