I'm not an expert in Vala, but I understands it gives you syntactical
sugar for gtk stuff, so is a clear advantage over C. In the case of
python or any other language is more like: its easier than C and I
know how to program on it; but I need to handle funny bindings.

Overall I like Sean's idea, now who's going to try do it?
