You could use MacPython with the mpwsystem module (in :Mac:Contrib) and 
the toolserver, but it would probably be a bit convoluted. Somebody did 
an MPW version of Python a long long time ago, but I'm pretty sure that 
that isn't maintained anymore (i.e. macpythonistas who know anything 
about this: please speak up!).

And the chance of anyone picking up MPW-python nowadays, with MPW as 
good as dead, is minimal...
