Or Pike. http://pike.ida.liu.se It's exactly what you'd end up
with. Pike started out as LPC4 and is now in many ways more powerful
than Python, Perl, Ruby and the like. Depending on what you're after
of course, but for me it's perfect since I'm one of those that are
trying to mix text with graphics. And of course I'm using Pike :)

I were going to cut'n'paste some tidbits about the history of Pike,
but I thing I'll spare the list and let the ones interested read for
themselves.  http://pike.ida.liu.se/about/pike/history.xml
