I have been researching scripting languages for the better part of a
year and from my study... I think you are on the right track with

I have adopted Lua as my scripting language for several reasons.
Primarily because Lua is free and it's simple to embed and extend
the language.

I did find a commercial product Ch; you can find info here
http://www.softintegration.com/ The really cool thing about Ch is
that you don't have to do anything to bind it to your API.
