I definitely think that we should encourage people to write maintainable code.
However I also think that we should encourage people to write tests
etc. I'd much rather see people actually write test scripts in
whatever language they are familiar with than not write scripts.
I think that if people focus on writing modular code, that my personal
recommendation is that we probably don't need a global recommendation
I definitely think that using Python is fine. I also think that
moving away from the existing dejagnu tests would improve
