RR and Host Scripting

Where can I look for information on how, if at all, Rev would allow 
me to execute -- in a cross-platform way, preferably -- host scripts 
written in arbitrary other languages? For example, say I have a 
Python app that runs on OS X, OS 9, Windows, and *nix. But UI tools 
for  Python are primitive. So I want to create a cool UI in RR, and 
have it call these Python scripts.

On Mac, I'd use the OSA approach, on Windows the Windows Host 
Scripting, and on *nix presumably the shell.

In the realm of possibility? Or smoke?
