We already have too many languages (C++, Python, Scheme and bits of C)- and I see a maintenance problem with adding another one. The wrapper for has been written in Python, which is fortunately pretty simple to learn and use.

That's certainly an understandable position. I don't know Python, but I have been meaning to learn. From an initial glance through the PyObjC documentation, I think it would probably be possible to re- implement LilyPad in Python, but it would take a fair amount of work, and would require writing Python wrappers for a couple of frameworks in addition to writing the application code itself.

Which frameworks? AFAIK the wrappers are generated automatically from the Objective libraries, so they should be already available.
