	Mono ! or python ;-) Mono has the advantage of giving you a feel good
factor, of using a kick-ass fast jit, having several (full time ximian)
people to hold your hand, and having lots of really nice features that
would make it's integration as standard in an IDE nice.

	OTOH, python is - I understand, far more friendly than guile / perl for
embedding in programs, and it's out there on most of the machines you're
interested in.

	If I were doing it, I'd choose Mono, to help promote it because I think
it's significantly better than sliced bread. Also, I'm extremely
under-convinced by the "Must not include any new dependencies" type
argument ( which I see you wisely don't make :-).
