Setting custom folder icon in OS X?

I'm trying to find a way to set a custom folder icon in OS X.  I
thought that Applescript would be able to do it, but apparently it
can't.  Is there anything in the Macintosh libraries of Python that
will allow me to take an image file (e.g., jpeg, png, tiff, etc.) and
set it as the icon for a folder?
