Script-fu for arbitary text: Across applications (but especially in text editors) I want to be able to (a) right click on a bit of selected text (b) have the usual contextual menu pop up upon doing so, but with options to (c) send said text to an arbitrary script (perl, python, whatever) and (d) potentially have the selected text replaced by script results, if the context is right. What are my best options for both the Mac and Windows?

I would settle for instructions on how to work this for a specific text editor -- Vim, Dreamweaver, TextPad, TextWrangler -- if they're easy or other options are unavailable, but being able to do this in any app where one can edit text (and heck, maybe even in some where you can't) would be great.
