The scripts can be written in whatever you feel like, so long as it 
provides the format as specified by that link I sent.  Most of the 
scripts are written in python, as most of them are written by the same 
(very prolific) user, Doug Vaughan.  If you look at the existing 
grabbers, the 'twit.tv' grabber is written in python.  Looking at your 
code, you already have the grabber split off into a separate script, and 
even outputting your own XML format.  I doubt it would be difficult to 
adapt that into a Tree grabber.
