How would this solve the issues? Do you propose that the installation of
script-fu or tiny-fu is mutually exclusive? This would of course be the
ideal solution. But since you say that tiny-fu is never going to be able
to run all script-fu scripts unmodified, the chance that anyone would
install tiny-fu in favor of script-fu seems rather small.

With the Python binding maturing, it could become the default GIMP
script interpreter. But people will still want to be able to run some
script-fu script occasionally.
