i do not. it's in fact a mater of disk space and time to maintain
the installation. this also includes phone costs to install (and
of course regularily update) the package. please take into account
that this seems to be required for all 300 of us.

i have no problem, if anyone writes any script in whatever 
language (s)he desires. my concern is the requirement for all
and every developer to install yet another excellent language.

IIRC there was already a volunteer, so why bother.

if i have the choice of whether a single maintainer has to
waist it's time (and/or money) or all 300 of us, the choice is
clear, isn't it?
