   Then we'll just write Python as an Excel macro. Microsoft has over its
entire history stuck programming languages in things *even when they are a
security liability*. They show no signs of deviating from this path with
ever more code-hosting ecosystems with every Windows release.

   I suspect that a Python interpreter could be built out of a set of
Outlook message processing rules although I wouldn't be the one to volunteer
to do it whereas I will volunteer to do the Excel port if it should ever be
needed.
