Despite my problems with tcl, that made me look at python, I think
Tcl's weighting is not fair.

I'd weigh Tcl's speed at least with 15, if python gets 20,
and Tcl's "power" is definitely higher than 10, or it must
  be a very strange definition of "power" ...
Are there really so much more tools for python to warrant a 2:3 ratio ?

On the other hand, I'd have given only 85 for Tcl's ease of use,
  because simple, common things require considerable scriptual overhead.
  (expr for all arithmetics, eval+list for dynamic argument-passing)
