Python for Instrument Control

Python seems to be becoming a de facto language for instrument control, at the level that you can no longer take for granted that manufacturers provide C libraries. I appreciate that it is a somewhat recurring theme to have more Python support in Igor, but I'll mention specifically that it could be helpful to have a more simplified way to use Python libraries for instrument control.  Having a more direct and simplified way to, for instance, call a Python script and pass back basic data like simple numeric variable or arrays would be very helpful.

I don't think the CallFunction XOP can directly be used to call python functions. But maybe this could be extended to do so. I'll have a look.
