Just script the Finder via osascript
Authored by: GaelicWizard on Apr 24, '10 10:58:35AM

But, of course, this method fails completely in any situation where Finder won't cooperate, such as:
(1) when Finder isn't running.
(2) when AppleScript (via osascript) won't work, e.g. when ssh'd in.
(3) when Finder is blocked waiting for something else, e.g. with a modal dialogue box on screen.
