TCL and Racket (was mzscheme). I think the key thing is that languages
designed for embedding provide a C API. Python supports embedding, so
if we did move away from the C API, we'd need to be very careful not
to make it harder to embed Python (or deprecate embedding altogether,
but I don't think that's realistic - quite a few projects embed
Python).
