I agree that we should have a "standard gimp scripting language" but
nothing prevents us from having it in a separate package on which The
GIMP depends on being installed - just as we depend on GTK+ being
installed (and just as we will depend on GEGL being installed in a not
too distant future).
I believe the project would benefit from splitting stuff like script-fu,
python-fu etc. out from the main source module into their own. Why? To
make the GIMP source code more modular. IMO, modularity means easier to
maintain, easier to grok for new developers - and the beauty of it all:
a much better separation between the different modules.
