From having used ZipScript for the past 7 years, it evidently doesn't
depend on the capabilities of the target application. It will even
paste scriptures into a simple text editor. If you davelop an
application that can copy to the clipboard, close itself, then paste to
the currently active application (like using Ctrl-V from the keyboard),
you should have what you're looking for.
