It can be with the pythonwin extensions.

LibreOffice 4.0.0, released 2 days ago, upgrades the bundled Python from 
2.6 (itself an upgrade) to 3.3!

One new addition, also from the above
"LibreLogo" vector graphics language: Logo toolbar and interpreter

The lightweight implementation (1400 lines in Python-PyUNO) uses the 
embedded Python to give a simplified programming interface to the 
excellent vector graphics of LibreOffice for graphic design and 
education (including teaching of word processing). ...
I am hoping the PyUNO doc will see improvement.
