on documentShouldFinalizeAuthenticatedSave(theDocument, tempFilePath, destinationPath)

    -- on input: tempFilePath points to the contents of the document
    -- written to a temp file, ready to move to the destination;
    -- destinationPath is where the file should be copied.

    -- on exit: if the operation succeeded, delete the temp file (or
    -- else the application will assume the operation failed) and
    -- return YES for success

    --  this is pretty straightforward: "cp tmpFilePath destinationPath"

    do shell script "cp" & " " & quoted form of tempFilePath & " " & quoted form of destinationPath with administrator privileges

    --  now remove the temp file, this indicates to the application that we did the work

    do shell script "rm" & " " & quoted form of tempFilePath

    return true
end documentShouldFinalizeAuthenticatedSave
