It won't be. Firstly since I'm not all that familiar with Python, but more importantly since I want to use the command line tools that I've grown accustomed to for manipulating my fairly large music database (oggenc, oggdec, vorbiscomment, ...). While it's certainly possible to launch those from any language, shell is the easy choice. Otherwise I'm just reading and manipulating text files, which bash is good enough at.

I moreover have no need for databases other than the file system and my music player's database -- and given that execution will be completely I/O-bound, even using pure assembly would not in fact be any faster.

All I want additionally is multi-dimensional arrays...

Kind regards,
