Using IronPython to activate the Pipeline Pilot Connector?

I'm just delving into using IronPython to add some oomph to my Spotfire visualizations (thus far mostly altering multiple aspects of a visualization at one time (change all axes, color scheme, title) and it struck me that it should be possible to use the pipeline pilot connector guide tools through python. At present the only method I have to do this is by inserting a 3.0 text box (the more recent text box does not give access to the pilot connector) and then either give a link (which is very 2002) or fake out a button using an image/link combo to use things - this is wholly inefficient use of screen real estate.

Does anyone know how one would go about referencing/running the various guide tools in IronPython?
