Considering Python For Embedded Scripting

I am working on a new version of a real-time graphics application, and want
to replace the current in-house scripting system.  The scripting system
would be imbedded an application written in C, and would, in turn, call
utilities written in C.  So, Python would be used as a parser of
byte-compiled scripts. Scripts are triggered by user actions and are run in
real time, so performance is an issue.  The scripts trigger various events,
special effects, and primitive creation. The scripts are possibly written by
non-programmers, so ease of use is also a consideration.  Would this be a
good job for Python? Thanks in advance for any advice.
