A one-shot script that populates a feature tree

Hi Everybody!

I had already touched upon this subject but there was no way to implement it.

Let me remind as discussion was carried out:
Is there any way to write a script that could call features in the particular order(i.e. by scenario)?

I know that I can just create another feature and call all functions (custom features) that I need to create Part. 
But in this case I'll get only one feature in my feature tree (in Part Studio) instead of the list of called features.

I want to take a list of features (then I'd get some changes at any feature):

                                             Instead of this one:

Now I want to ask again about it. Maybe issue had been already solved and something like a one-shot script that populates a feature tree was invented.

    As far as I'm aware there is no change.  A script can make exactly one feature in the feature tree.

    Correct, for populating a feature tree programmatically, the API is needed.  We plan on making writing code that calls the API easier in the future.
