Radical suggestion/question


Since some work has already been done to isolate guppi from
guile-gnome/gtk, I have the following question:

How about switching to python for an embedded language? (Puts on asbestos
suit ;-)

* Python (,is ('easier( than (lisp))) (except that weird indentation
  counts as code grouping thing :-)
* It is more widely supported
* All work done on Numerical python is automatically inherited
  automatically (some great codes/solvers etc. are available). 

I guess the question is how deeply embedde is guile in guppi?
And how emotionally attached are Jon/others to guile? ;-)
