Open Sound Control block for GRC?

Hello all,
I’m in the process of putting together an SSB/CW receiver using GNU
Radio + a USRP1,
and just came across the GNU Radio Companion, which is a truly wonderful
thing

One thing that seems to be missing from the Companion is the ability to
easily interface
with other software or to control it from another networked machine /
device,
so the Open Sound Control (OSC) protocol seems like a no-brainer

OSC uses UDP packets formatted like URL strings (e.g. /filter/width 500)
to communicate
between software locally or over a network:
http://opensoundcontrol.org/spec-1_0

It sports some handy features such as pattern-matching & time tags, and
has been implemented in a number of
programming languages and development environments as well as numerous
commercial software applications,
(including Python, Ruby, PHP, Java, Processing, OpenFrameworks, Cinder,
SuperCollider, PD, Max/MSP, Reaktor)
on most platforms you can think of:

Given that OSC has been implemented in Python already, starting from
Simple OSC:
http://www.ixi-audio.net/content/body_backyard_python.html

or pyOSC:
https://trac.v2.nl/wiki/pyOSC

should make this a straightforward enough process, but not having
written a GRC block before,
I’m wondering if anyone might have pointers on where to begin, or might
be interested in a quick port.

Warm regards,
Mark
