We have? I must have missed the reasoning here.
I'd like to see Perl, Python, and Tcl all be in the base (even though I
no longer use Perl or Tcl myself). These scripting languages are increasingly
important for applications; I think a reference system lacking them would
be seriously crippled.

Don't think of it as `gun control', think of it as `victim
disarmament'. If we make enough laws, we can all be criminals.
