Eh?  You really think people who program only in C/C++/Java/FORTRAN
would really prefer a Lispy scripting language?  People who use Emacs
don't really count, as they (mostly) shouldn't need to care, they
should just use gdb (or gud) mode.

Anyway, my question is not "which idealized scripting language do you
think should be used for an imaginary debugger's command language?"
It's "which real debugger's actual scripting language do you prefer?"
