Generating a Grid of Points on Selected Polygons

Just wondering if anyone out there has any ideas on how to generate a systematic grid of points that are a specified distance apart via python. I'm creating plots for field measurements and for each polygon that represents a forested stand, I'm creating a regularly spaced grid for sampling purposes. I'm aware of third party tools (i.e.Hawths) but I'd like to do it in python. I've looked at the 'create random points' and 'fishnet' tools but can't really think of how to impliment them in this manner. I'm using v10. Let me know if you need some clarifications.
