It would be really cool if textastic doubled as an interactive python interpreter with a command line function and everything. Since python doesnt need compilation i believe it is possible. Thanks!

You will notice that all apps that support running code - like Kodiak, Codea and PythonMath for example - do not have file download capabilities. So, if I wanted to add the ability to run code in Textastic, I'd have to remove FTP, "Open In", WebDAV, Dropbox and all other means of sharing files with other apps.
These are the relevant points in the App Store review guidelines:
2.7 Apps that download code in any way or form will be rejected
2.8 Apps that install or launch other executable code will be rejected
That's a limitation that is imposed by Apple, sorry.
