OH, I forgot to include the case, for where the function returns
something that isn't a string...like it returns an integer, float, list,
dictionary, or what-have-you.

How about this?

f = open('myfile.txt', 'w')
f.write(str(function(param1, param2, ...)))

Basically, wrapping

around anything will convert it to it's "string" representation, if that
is possible. For most of the basic types, I can't imagine a problem.
