Lars is right (as usual).  Actually, compared to *any-
thing*, Python seems to arrive first on the interfacing
scene.  This is interesting; Tcl and Lua emphasize ease
of embedding and extensibility in their design, and Perl
has hordes of interfacing worker bees, but a consistent
pattern emerges that Python does at least as well as any
other language in achieving connection to the latest
toolkits-protocols-...  It's an interesting story, even
though I don't yet understand it.
