Briefly, but I'm not fully qualified to judge.  I wrote this
in another post that you might not yet have seen:

"""Ming appears to be in an extremely early form, and there are
    suggestions it's not very stable yet (and I think that word was used
    in the sense of "unreliable", not just "changing").

    The script support appears to be "C-like, with a very limited
    feature set".  Doesn't even allow function calls?!  That
    can't be good.
