It's not that hard to adapt the script for other purposes. I used the same logic to create en+emdash.py:


What this does is to look for hyphens. If it finds one, it is left alone. Two in row becomes an endash, and three in the row an emdash. It's a much speedier way to use en- and emdashes than entering them one by one from the menu.
