Bridge between ArcPy and ArcObjects

I don't think Python can truly replace VBA for scripting within ArcMap until there is a way to get to actual ArcObjects in the current session (e.g. through IApplication or IMxDocument).  I don't see anything like that at this time in ArcPy.  Perhaps I'm missing something?  As far as I can tell, MapDocument("CURRENT") only leads to other ArcPy objects, and that's not good enough.
