Just to follow up on this - I have made these changes today, so the code now in the repository provides a single "TW" global to the script, with the three properties TW.target, TW.app, and TW.result (for scripts such as the LaTeX Errors hook that need to return a result to the application).

(The example scripts in the repository have been updated to use this syntax, but copies in an existing scripts folder will not be automatically updated.)
