Joseph, did you consider using Guile Scheme instead? One can argue about the 
flexibility ... Guile is just unbeatable :), it is used by lilypond itself, so 
in the
end you'll be better prepared to help other lily devs (which I'm not) ... my 2c

I'm saying this because you mentioned earlier you do not know Python, which
means you are going to learn a new programming language, so, unless you have 
criteria along the line, I strongly recommend Guile (and geiser, the emacs 
mode that we all (guilers) use, which really rocks! and makes hacking just fun!


        you can ask quiz on irc
        channel #guile

This might be of interest as well, though I personally really don't like the 
parens' syntax, it is worth reading, no matter wha your choice is/will be...:
