Integrating a code generator into IDLE

Code generators seem to be popular in Python.
I have one that I'd like to integrate into IDLE. Ideally, I'd like to
(1) have a new file type show up when I use the File/Open dialog, and
(2) have a function key that lets me run my generator against the file,
just like F5 lets me run my Python code; ideally, I'd like to re-purpose
the F5 key to be file-type aware. I've got a simple extension written
that uses the F6 key to "compile" my files, but two goals I've listed
seem a bit beyond me. Does anyone have any advice/pointers? Or is one
or both ideas impractical? Thanks!
