At the heart of the issue is the fact that I refuse to use Java for this 
project, I prefer not to use .Net because of the portability issues, and 
I'd like to get away from C++ for obvious reasons.

To me this means Ruby, Python, or, as mentioned above, Perl.  If anyone 
can tell me of a way to meet the above requirements in either Python or 
Perl, I'm all ears (I just prefer Ruby).
