Ah! My apologies, I stand corrected. Not being familiar with it (and
not really being able to google it - there's no guarantee it's the
first hit), I assumed that the dependency was ".NET *and* Mono",
meaning that the program needs .NET regardless.

That reduces the risks considerably, although I'd still rather stick
with Python itself.
