Allowing assemblers to define scripts from within the Composite Application Editor

I have now heard there are several companies incorporating some kind of scripting capabilities inside of Lotus Notes and Lotus Expeditor. I have even seen demos where some customers are doing this now with Expeditor.

Does it make sense to have a full blown scripting engine at the finger tips of assemblers?

Some of the ideas floating around are:

– scripts for transformations between wires
– new buttons in the global toolbar to do “whatever”
– scripts to automate certain things like filling out forms, etc

Groovy is being talked about pretty heavily for this. I would like to hear if there is a requirement building out there. Would you like to see this in the core product?

If you think it should be, make sure you vote over at IdeaJam. So far its not looking too good.
