Never know what to answer when people ask if X was considered: I have lots of thoughts on most issues, that probably counts as “having considered it” but is a rather useless answer.

I see both downsides and upsides about tight scripting integration. It has to be done very carefully and really be thought through, not rushed or done ad hoc — I still think opening up TM for tight integration is too early — some of it also relates to internal data structures used in TM, e.g. ensuring good simple APIs can be provided that still provide good scalable performance etc.
