one more thing...

The original article mentioned wanting global keyboard control of itunes, and that one way to do this would be through the Services menu. It doesn't seem like a great idea to do that, first because Services is designed more for dealing with data in the current app ("Cut and Paste on Steroids"), and second because there's already a way to control itunes with about as many keystrokes as it would take to access an item in the Services menu. Assuming that you have Full Keyboard Access turned on (which I assume you do if you're talking about getting to the Services menu from the keyboard), you can just activate the dock, arrow over to the itunes icon, then either up- or down- arrow to get the popup menu which has more control and info than is possible with applescript.
