Python Scripts inside AdiumScripts package

I’ve got some stuff to do that will be easier with python, so I’m wondering if it’s possible to package a python script up, and use it from within an AppleScript, without having to have it in the path. It may not be, since AppleScript’s

do shell script “pwd”

returns "/", indicating it is running at the root directory. Well, back to pipes and awk/sed. (Actually, I think I’d just used awk & sed inside the python script).
