Send to kGTD ADVANCED is a modest improvement to the Send to kGTD script that Ethan created. Not only does it work for launchers other than Quicksilver, It has a few other improvements over the included script:

1 The kGTD file is saved once the new task is added. Computers fail sometimes, and it would be a shame to have a lot of new tasks vanish in the midst of a weekly review. Especially given the new functionality in this release, this action is now my #1 way to add tasks. I’d hate to lose ‘em.
2 Closes kGTD file on completion if it was closed already. Keep the computer clean and memory available. If the kGTD file was open to begin with, it remains open.
3 LaunchBar support. This can be activated from LaunchBar. Simple enough. Still works with Quicksilver, too. (As the previous script I sent did.)
4 Run support. If the script is just plain “run,” it will prompt the user with a dialog to enter the new task string. This permits the script to be run from Apple’s script menu, Butler, DragThing, FastScripts, iKey, or darn near anything that can run scripts.
5 Correctly matches contexts. The version included in 0.83 will return the last match, not necessarily the best match. I submitted a bug report about this on the website. There might be a better way to handle this, but this seems quick and works well.
6 Rather than use the “new” flag when creating a context or project, this will actually create a new context or project if a match isn’t found. This might be better handled through an alert of some sort (e.g. “Are you sure you want to create context: New Context?”), but I prefer this behavior.
