Joining Data; NOT Using the Join Field Tool

I am trying to write a script that joins a monthly parcel ownership data table to a parcel feature class. Throughout this process I figured out the difference between Joining and the Join Field geoprocessing tool...

- Joining is limited to the map document itself
- The Join Field tool permanantly appends the new table to the feature class.

I cannot find a script snippet that allows me to join a table only within the map document.

Anyone know of any solutions? Thank you!
