Your topic says GUI and standalone.
Typically GUIs are application specific.
We have a mel script on the site (createAndAssignShader.mel) which enhances some Maya fast sss functionality. Is that the script you are referencing?
Or are you interested in integrating mental ray into your own GUI/program?
This topic is addressed in the integration section of the Programming mental ray handbook.
We are also thinking of putting out a Python equivalent of the C example of the mental ray library wrapper shown in the front part of that integration section.

I think he means submitting a .mi job to Mental Ray standalone from within Maya through a mel based GUI..sumthing similar to Puppet's Mel script perhaps..
