there haven't been such plans yet, but it would of course be a nifty

Being a Perl-person I know that you can prettly easily integrate a Perl-
interpreter into C programs, using `libperl'. This would, IMHO, be some

I don't know about other scripting languages, but I'm confident
something similar exists for Python and Ruby.
