An expression to control the Playhead's position?

Hi, I'm wondering if it's possible to control the position of the playhead via an expression?
My scenario is:
I'm using the paintbrush tool in AE CS6 - I want the playhead to automatically shift to the latest keyframe created on my layer after the completion of every paint stroke.

Hitting "u", then "k" is my work around but I was wondering if anyone had any ideas :) Thanks!

No. Expressions can't move the current-time indicator. They can only set a layer property to a value.
