Why do you care what RMS says? He even later recanted his initial criticisms, but the damage was already done. The reason for including Tcl is likely because it's designed to be embedded in applications; Python is not. Tcl is simple. You don't need bells and whistles for something like this. End users need never see the language that's being used, so does it really make a big difference?
