Generate new points on polyline from existing points on polyline

I have a polyline that represents the thalweg of a river.  I have points snapped to that polyline, which represent locations where I've collected data.  I am looking for a Python tool that will allow me to generate two points: one point located a set distance upstream of my original point on the thalweg and a second point located a set distance downstream from my original point on the thalweg.  A Python analog to DistanceAlongCurve in ICurve.QueryPointAndDistance would be great, but I can't find a tool that will do the trick.  

I am using ArcGIS 10.0 with an ArcInfo license.  Thanks!
