By the way, what would you think about Gambas? It's actively supported 
and under constant development, and nearly everyone able to write a 
script can easily write code in a BASIC dialect. Moreover, this language 
can be easily adapted/extended to comprise specialties like in a DTP 
program, and working with strings is a charme. Gambas is also very 
reliable, it includes a non-GUI interpreter and has been extended by 
objects and inheriting. If you are interested: 

The only drawback would be that up to now it's Linux-only, but is there 
a Python in Windows?
