Tom will be able to give you a more definitive answer - but mine is
that I don't think either is possible yet, but both of these are on
my list of original goals for scripting support.

Caz, I've copied you because what Andrew's done here is very close to
what you posted for Linux KGDB - but done entirely in Python
scripting.  Once we get the breakpoint issue resolved, I think this is
a much nicer way to handle Linux loadable modules too.
