While I don't agree with the specific details of what you're  
recommending, I do agree with the sentiment expressed here: unless  
there are compeillingly-good alternatives (or even alternatives-that- 
don't-suck) it might well be worth considering a lisp-based tool.  I  
don't know the state of the art now, but there certainly were no  
alternatives which did not suck (or were not prohibitively expensive)  
a few years ago.
