Note that there is nothing about the Self language itself that keeps us from creating a scripting version of it, just that only one person who has worked on Self so far has been interested in this (OpenSelf, but see my note at http://www.merlintec.com:8080/Self).
This link appears to be broken.
I think might really help in getting people to try and use Self if:
- when you download Self on OSX, it would be one file (a .app wrapper) and you could simply double click on it to start Self. (no messing with environment variables, etc.)
- there was a command line version that accepted script files and can be used for writing web scripts (yes, the web is a crummy UI - but it's useful)
- these features would be supported by the maintainers of Self directly, so users have confidence that they will continue to be supported
