Forum OpenACS Development: Response to webmail contributors
Plus the notion that folks have to learn Tcl, SQL, Perl and Python just to read the toolkit sources is pretty gross, isn't it? It's bad enough that perl scripts wormed their way into the mix (especially given that watchdog had a bug that caused it to loop indefinitely!) but at least those were standalone scripts, not integrated into the toolkit.
Adding another language to the mix further raises the bar for entry into this world. Do we *really* need to do this?
