Agreed.  In other words: if it works, keep it.  I know a lot of people
who aren't really happy with Tcl but would much prefer Python over it.
Personally, I'm quite neutral on the issue: I've been using Tcl
(together with Tk, e.g. in the Mfile utility) but I never really got
to like Tcl myself.

I didn't look at it, but only guessing from what I've seen: all these
interpreter interfaces are derived using SWIG.  In that case, there's
probably no reason to drop the Python stuff, as SWIG is handling all
the low-level details, so nobody has to personally take care about it.

If there's really noone around to maintain the Python part, I guess
I'll find someone whom I could convince. ;-)

Never trust an operating system you don't have sources for. ;-)
