This goes in wx._core_:

function Unknown(string TheName)
typeKey(iniReadString("Common Keys", TheName,
getCurrentScriptKeyName(), GetJawsSettingsDirectory()+"\\mctwit.jkm"))
endFunction


Then, simply switchToConfiguration("mctwit" in WXCore's autoStartEvent
function. Put your scripts in mctwit.jss.
Hope that cleared things up at least a little.
