Scripting in Python

Here is an interesting problem:

In many scripting languages (ScriptX, TeleScript, HyperTalk) you can write
something like -

ON trigger DO
Play the movie named "Guido"
Goto Card name "Nice and Clean"

I am attempting to do something similar with media using Python but am
finding that the language keeps forcing me to refer to the final names of
objects. Can anyone point out a way for me to soft-code the Trigger events
to get the ON event behavior? How about support for referring to objects by
name as opposed to by symbol?
