Get[] can load any file that was created with Save so you should be 
able to
include Script[ Get["someSaveFile"]] within your GUIKit definition to 
load any data
saved out with Save, or even a Script source file that is written not 
to include semi-colon lines.

Perhaps you are talking about the actual content of an external Script 
If you could forward me a specific example I can investigate where we 
might be able to improve the current functionality.
