It depends on how you want the output returned to the browser.
Getting something to happen in response to a page is usually a
variation of http://www.pmwiki.org/wiki/PmWiki/PerGroupCustomizations,
which describes how to call scripts for an entire group but can
also be used for per-page customizations.

Getting the output of the script to appear in a specific location on
a page is usually done by either page variables, markup, or
<!--file:...--> directives in a skin template.
