Some people like scheme, some prefer tcl, others visual basic, and yet
others perl...

It would be nice if the enduser could take its favourite scripting
language plugin, add it to its new application and have everything
work. It would save the 'which scripting language do we use?'
decisions for application developers.

Has anyone seen any work on a standard API for scripting languages?
The only things I've seen that's close is the microsoft activex
scripting engine interface, and some early discussion of guile
providing multiple languages to the end-user.

I'd hate to re-invent the wheel again.
