Woo, very good.

I was rather dissapointed that my own music collection sent me to the music store.

its one command in the terminal. Its a little overkill to use an applescript to do this, all the script does is just invoke this command in the shell in the background. Just run this if you want your arrow functionality reveresed:

defaults write invertStoreLinks -bool YES

The nice thing about the AppleScripts is that once you install them in iTunes’ Script menu, you can toggle the behavior back and forth as desired.

It’s just a little more convenient than having to journey into Terminal—which a lot of people would rather not do anyway!

surely no need to toggle, just set it the first time to your preference then use alt-click to toggle the behaviour.
