I guess Koji-san meant to use a custom event to trigger the script on the ScratchClient. The script name is irrelevant. If you disable "etoys friendly" you find "define a new custom event" in the "more..." submenu for the script trigger. That lets you define other triggers than "mouseDown", "mouseUp" etc. IIUC you need to name it "broadcast:go".
