Writing pins to the RS232

I want to write to the pins of an RS232 without using the serial
protocol.  The use would be every pin could act to complete a circuit
in customized hardware.  I could use python to communicate serially to
a BASIC stamp or a Javelin stamp and then use the stamp to set however
many pins as 0's or 1's but should it be that hard to do with python.
I've looked through how python does serial with the "serial" module but
it just uses Java's javax.comm libraries.  Is there anyway to do very
low level device writing to COM ports?

In summary I'm looking for something like:
ser = serial.Serial(0)
ser.pin0 = 1
ser.pin1 = 1
ser.pin2 = 1

which would set 8 pins on the RS232 cable to 1's
