adding leaves to modeled tree

I want a scripted method to add leaves to an Oak tree I'm modeling. Any thoughts?

Thanks.

in my Facer MEL script, there is Make Shape Here script that will take the last selected object and place it on selected vertices:

Select a bunch of random verts, then the leaf and use the script. Look here to see how to use it:

also, if you want a great paint geometry script, this is the gold standard:
