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.
