I have to say that, IMO, XLisp is a fine scripting language. You can think
of Nyquist as a bunch of data structures and DSP routines implemented in C,
with XLisp acting as a scripting language on top to make it more usable. I
use Xlisp all the time as a scripting language, both stand-alone and linked
to C code. That said, I would choose another language for writing scripts
for Audacity. My experience with Nyquist is that many users are put off by
the syntax, and I'd want Audacity users to feel as comfortable as possible.
