It seems to me that this thread was about an embedded scripting
language, similar to Lisp in Emacs. i.e. the app would have to have
explicit support for scripting and export specific bindings.

However, for functionality such as AppleScript (much more simple
macros, and you want ALL apps to support it with no extra effort) it
seems to me that you want to use the accessibility hooks. Those
already let you record and perform all GUI actions.

If we used the accessibility hooks for scripting I think it'd help a
lot with getting better testing and out-of-the-box workingness on
those hooks, as well.
