Having trouble with python script for "Assign Default To Field" for multiple features

I'm trying to create a python script that will be run in arctoolbox that will allow users to choose multiple feature classes and default the same field in all of the feature classes to the same user entered default value. Is there an easy way to do this?

Also if there are different subtypes for each feature class will that be a problem? Currently the default values need to be assigned to the feature class and its subtypes for this geoprocessing tool to work. It would be a pain to have to specify each subtype in a script I think unless there was a way to just automatically include all of them for a given feature class.
