if these scripts simply involve file based processing  this sort of 
thing is really not that difficult to add to the existing framework by 
suclassing an existing io stream and writing a handful of methods. if 
it involves "direct connection" its more difficult (lisp ffis) but can 
still be done.  but of course it takes someone doing it..  right now i 
am aware of seveal such useful projects by people on this list:
	direct output to alsa midi seqs
	score file output to supercollider3
	plotting output to gnuplot
and someone recently inquired about generating enigma files for working 
with sibelius and finale.
it would be a Fine Thing if these things could be added so that 
everyone might benefit. i am more than happy to help and contribute in 
whatver way i can but i cant become a guru in the api's and file 
formats for all these things!
