I think there is a fundamental difference which is that here you want to write a widget for a language that is **by definition** a graphic language. 
So generating code from that is unavoidable. 

The question is could you just have a handler on kernel side that receives data and do what needs to be done with those data.

I'm not sure of what your end-goal is, but keep in mind that you can bind custom kernel to IPython notebook.
So if a blocky kernel make any sense... it might be more what you are looking for.
