I was more thinking of it as a configuration file rather than a full
language, to try and make the logic of it a little more obvious than it
would be in a fully fledged scripting language - which is much easier
for people who don't know (or want to learn) python.

I do like the idea of a more general scheme, although I don't think it
should be an actual executable script checked into subversion.  Probably
an property containing simple line configuration or XML if more
structure is required.  Then any tool is free to process those
