You could treat it like plugins.

that is have a rubybin folder and a pythonbin folder

Load the correct assemblies in a different appdomain execute your code  
there and get the result back.

For Michael this idea isn't new :) I'll that later this week in our  
dynamic script control to see how that works out.
Any other more simple and elegant solutions are welcome of course
