I don't think we should do that simply because I don't see what is so important about having a self-contained scripting language. I'd rather like to see three or four well-maintained and working scripting languages that can be installed separately. If we can make sure that the language extensions work and can be easily installed that should be good enough then.

I'm with Simon - at least one scripting language installation's a good idea. We might assume that perl or python are more or less universally available, but we can certainly not assume that guile is always installed. Given the fact that script-fu has historically been the reference language binding (and it continues to be), we should go out of our way to make sure it's available, IMHO.
