I'd be much more tempted to go with one of the several readily
available embeddable languages that is already out there (and
hopefully reasonably well tuned).  Python comes to mind as one
example -- just add in a coule default modules to handle your data
model and such trivia and you're away.

(This has nothing of course to do with PythonMOO which I've already
referenced here)
