Looking for best approach for importing and re-projecting points

I'm hoping to put together a python script that reads xml files and creates new points in an existing feature class. The xml has the point data in lat / long (NAD83); however, the target feature class is NAD27 state plane oregon north.

Am I correct in saying that there isn't really a way to re-project individual point geometries ... and that I'd need to create a featureset (or feature class, this is 9.3) in memory to call the project tool, then read possibly append that point data to the target fc?

Thanks in advance,
