  what? ick. Common Lisp is _very_ nice to work with thank you. that
  Tcl is the ultimate masochist language even beyond befunge on the
  other hand is true.

  python is fair enough.

  I was locked in a few choices, I know perl very well, I know python
  quite well. I know lisp enough to love it. 

  the question is maintenance. and I wonder if I write perl so much
  better than python that it would be a good idea. then again, I'm not
  that happy producing code in either. 

  and right now, I don't have time. :(

  oh, we do try.
