re: TCL

Looks like the choice of Tcl (over, say Python) is worth questioning. RMS believed it was a limited language and a bad foundation:

It's hard to weigh the pros and cons of a language across all applications. There are opponents to every language that I have ever heard of. Try TCL yourself, if you like it fine, if not thatís ok to.
