Is Rev too "Mac focused"?

Another idea has been percolating this morning.

OS X has AppleScript and supports the OSA (Open Scripting 
Architecture). Windows has Windows Scripting Host (WSH) and I think 
also supports OSA. OSA lets you create systtem-level actions in a 
scripting tool like Perl or Python or Tcl.

So it might be feasible to have people who program in those scripting 
languages develop OSA modules that we could call from Rev?

(If this is irrational, chalk it up to the fact that it's 2 a.m. and my 
brain is at least partially fried.)
