Not directly. You have to write a python layer to access the function written 
in Miro. Btw: thx for the info. I try if I can integrate some functions of 
miro into MythTV.
Here is a sample of a simple Hello World Plugin written in MythPython:
> testdialog          = MythScriptCustomThemedDialog();
> testdialog.show();
> testText=MythScriptUITextType(testdialog)
> testText.move(0,0,300,300);
> testText.setText("Hello World");
> testText.show();
