What is the state of Perl bindings?
That aside, these languages are attractive in large part because of their
large libraries, and the problem I see is not using the language on its
own, but rather the huge dependecies it is likely to require.
Configuration panels are a good example of where scripting languages could
be used, but do we want half of them written in Python and half in Ruby?
to learn and it's small.
