This isn't hard and a nice idea!

You should work on the unstable VLC git, which will be released as VLC 1.2 later this year. It's accessible at <git://git.videolan.org/vlc.git>. For compilation instructions, please have a look at the wiki.

Have a look at modules/gui/macosx/applescript.*
It's pretty straight forward. If you get stuck, feel free to ask here or on IRC.

Best regards,

Developer of VLC's Mac OS X port
