No, there are simple pratcical reasons for that. For every feature
you provide you have to think about the additional value against the
additional dependencies.

Some things (that are implemented in perl) would not significantly lower
the number of dependencies when done in another language. gap-vcr could be
done in gap without any additional dependencies, however.

So it's obvious what is better.

(I was under the impression that gap was no longer nmaintained anyway, but
that was wrong).
