What you want certainly is possible.  I don't understand
yet what you want.

Please explain the user view again.  The user sees a GUI.
The user pushes a button.  "[T]he [P]ython script" begins
to execute.  Does the GUI need the result of the script's
operation?  Is the purpose of the button-push to run the
script, or to run it and receive a result?  Should the GUI
"block" until the script is done, or remain responsive to
other user points-and-clicks, or go on with other actions?
On what platforms do you want to run your application?
