I think the language issue is a red herring, as it is simple enough to
generate a C binding and from that everything else, and there is nobody
to stop you if it's a GPL-ed tool. Someone there asked about Perl, and
the answer was that they considered Python to be a more maintainable
alternative. I must admit to sharing their feelings on perl.

Does that mean you aren't going to make it free software? :-)
