I'm not sure if it's possible to bundle an Applescript in with a VUO app in a Contents sub-folder and somehow trigger that script to run (inside Vuo or externally)?

You can get around this to some extent having an AppleScript file run outside of Vuo and pass the info by writing info to a text file, .info file or perhaps using OSC if you can find an Applescript way to write to OSC (I've never googled that option, text file is fine for my needs). Given that Vuo can export screensavers now, a few iTunes peak and poke nodes could be worthwhile, at least to pull track and playlist data.

I recall there was some QC Core Image filter code in one of their example comps to do this.

Vuo doesn't have CI filters, so I guess converting from the QC CI round-corners patch (if somebody can find it, it's not in the patch library) to ISL shader code for a Vuo node is one way you could get this done quickly if you can code GLSL. I forget how the code went, but was pretty straight forward maths using a comparison operator with the radius input to knock pixels on the corners out to (r,g,b,a,) = (0,0,0,0).
