It's been some time since I've done much on the Python plugin, but if I
recall correctly you should be able to apply a style to any paragraph
within a frame. You just need to select the paragraph(s) to apply the
style to - which you can also do programatically - before calling

This does seem somewhat counterintuitive for a scripting API, but it's
the only practical way I see of doing it until some changes can be made
to the core code.
