I agree that it would be very nice for have a scripting language inside
gnubg. Scheme is the gnu-way to go, but my knowledge of lisp only
extends to making simple initialisations in my .emacs file :-)

Python and perl are other candidates. It looks quite easy to to embed
python into gnubg. We would have to provide a wrapper function for each
important gnubg function. Does anyone have experience with embedding
python into C-programs?

Both perl and python has gtk extensions, so it also possible to make
user functions that creates dialogs etc.
