Another scripting language implemented into Python itself?

I'm really not sure but there might be some way to embed Java Script within 
Jython. Or to run Jython from inside Java much like the jEdit editor. You 
then have Python to make some glue code between the C++ core and the Java 
Script. Java Script must be secure since it runs in browsers everywhere from 
my worst sex web sites !

I'm not really sure why the original poster want to use Python, I think it's 
to make the glue between C++ and the scripting engine. Nor am I really sure 
why java runs inside my browser ...
