Xcode is not extensible for a reason :) (As to what the reason is,  
you got me, but I'm sure there is one)

There is a means for writing Applescript plugins that will  
"persist" (i.e. most likely not break between point releases)

Basic rule of thumb, if you're using anything in PrivateFrameworks/  
then you're in uncharted waters (i.e. don't do it) and Apple carries  
no liability if they change the internal APIs between various releases.

Playing  with the fire that is private Mac OS X APIs is a sure way to  
get burnt.
