 I think Python would be the most palatable choice for GNOME software.
 And you should be able to rig up a mock service pretty easily with the
 libraries it provides.

python has been accepted as the one single language for scripting within the 
evolution-kolab project, with an if-ever-needed-fallback, which is POSIX shell 
script (which we will try to avoid since python should be even more portable 
today than POSIX shell scripts are).

Best regards,

Christian
