Of course.

Well, maybe I could work on some kind of workaround where the script that runs in Reaper executes another external script which runs independently of Reaper. That's the only thing I can think of.

Try executing a script with an infinite loop like this one (on an empty project please!):
while True:
Reaper will hang. Although that kind of code should never be written, I think Reaper should have some kind of protection against hanging scripts. As people start writing longer extensions it's possible these kinds of bugs could happen by accident, which cause Reaper hangs and users loosing their unsaved projects. I would feel really awful if someone lost their progress in a project due to a hanging script.
