How to read Mozrepl Javascript result into a Python Variable?

With Mozrepl addon in Firefox and Python I do:

>>> import telnetlib
>>> tn = telnetlib.Telnet(r'', 4242, 5)
>>> tn.read_eager()
'\nWelcome to MozRepl.\n\n - If you get stuck at the "'
>>> tn.read_until("repl> ")
>>> tn.write(r'alert(window.content.location.href)'+"\n")

and I get an alert box with the URL of the active tab. 

But how do I read that URL into a python variable? Something like tn.write(r';var zz = window.content.location.href'+ "\n") but that doesn't get it into python. 

I would be grateful for help. Thanks.
