You can read the radio group's 'text' property to see which one is
selected. Each radio button belongs to the radio group it as added to when
you used 'additem'.

I dont think those are tracked at all by the program after generation.

It stores it in the SizeX property of the sector.

That'd be the main problem - right now there's no facility for assigning
additional scripts to an event. Its something I may play around with in
FM8 (FM8 shares the Astro plugin system).

The name will get output in the sector report, I believe. But otherwise
the filename is used by the program more often than name is.
