the first gen EEE PC comes with python on it already; the next generation
devices will have even more storage. so these really aren't the devices that
we need to be worried about here. when we're talking about "can we fit a
python interpreter" on it, we're talking small devices like phones,
ultraportable tablets, blackberries, etc..

honestly, a bigger real world problem here is fitting these dialogs on the
screen size of these devices. as you get to small devices, i find that things
like guidance run out of screen space first ;)

for in-application scripting, absolutely. for full apps, something with more
available libraries, more application dev appropriate docs, etc would be
nice. in fact, many of the things that make ecmascript really great for in
application scripting are hindrances for full app devel ime.
