The Basic IDE as it is at moment is not extendable for supporting a new
language and I think it would be better to think about something new.

Downstrip Eclipse or NetBeans and use the main editor with Python
support and think about a closer integration in AOO. We started a long
time back thinking in this direction and used NetBeans and Java to allow
Java scripting in NetBeans but also deploying the scripts in AOO or even
in open documents in AOO.

This should be possible but it's definitely a bigger project and
requires some skills.
