Python, yes, very seriously. Why not? It is installed practically
everywhere and python scripts are comparable to shell scripts in speed
and size.
Not to mention not having to execute external tools, a lot nicer
syntax, the possibility to compile some classes of scripts to native
(with shedskin). Etc, etc.
Ofc, mktemp -d also works.
