Actually this has been discussed. At least two of the core members are
pro python. Python also gives us a better cross platform capability.

That being said, I also don't see any problem with using Perl. The
problem with perl is not maintainability, it is bad developers. You
*can* write perfectly maintainable perl code if you choose too.

In the end, I would expect that it is all irrelevant because we will
provide an API that allows you to write an interface in anything you want.
