First of all, I would like to hear Kevin on this. I have asked him to
tell us about his goals for Tiny-Fu and in order to evaluate this
question, we absolutely need to know what the goals are.

Then, I would suggest that instead of ending maintainance of Script-Fu
that we switch the Scheme interpreter in Script-Fu to tiny-scheme.
Instead of removing our only platform independent language binding, we
should apply the changes that Kevin has done in the gimp-tiny-fu module
to the plug-ins/script-fu directory in the GIMP tree. This should be a
relatively small change since it only involves replacing the Scheme
interpreter. The scripts itself and probably most of the UI code can be
left untouched. Development on Script-Fu can then continue as usual and
hopefully under the lead of Kevin and the tiny-fu CVS module has
fulfilled its role and can be declared as merged and closed.

Definitely not. Not unless we have discussed this.
