I would suggest that you embed python in your app (very easy to do).
-And convert several of your existing scripts to python.
-Show them a stack of python books for customer training purposes
- Drive excel with python (allows integration of your product with other
- Pick an area of functionality that your product offers today that your
customer would like to customize.
- convert this alg to python
- hack you product to execute the python script
- code a variant of the alg in python
- execute your variant to demonstrate that python can lower custom
development cost, and provide points of extensibility

The greatest performance improvement occurs on the transition of from
the non-working state to the working state.
