First, let's remember that librep has many defects and no one can make
real fix in any of them. It's better to move to some well-maintained
but at the same time stable enough language. But I don't know if it's
realistic. We're absolutely understaffed. How many work fulltime? (I
don't mean 24/7.)

I overheard Python-3.2 is / will be good enough. Though a rough argument,
python looks more like C than lisp/scheme do, so people are more
familiar, and it may be a better choice. (According to a recent poll,
it's the 4th hottest lang, after Java, C, C++. But I don't speak
python at all, and I can't judge.)

On the other hand, transition to some lisp is easier, because code
translation is sometimes straightforward, or at least, often easier.

But to which lisp/scheme? I browsed the site of guile-gtk, and its
development seems to be completely dead. (Guile itself is active.)

And let me repeat: it's a "who'll do it?" problem, less of "which lang?".
