You are right, Bert, sorry, got carried away. The main point was not 
compiled vs. interpreted, that was just a point of theology.

The main point for me :-) is
1)  stuff that currently lives as RPMs be usable by Uruguayan XO users, 
who are no allowed /sudo/
I hoped some kind of Sugarization or wrapper or something could do it
msp430-libc and dependencies, and mspdebug

2) one of those binaries, mspdebug, also currently needs to be run as sudo
again, maybe there was a way to do it without.

I really don't have the skills or knowledge. Also, due to Uruguay going 
to Classmates for Middle School onwards, this sort of becomes a moot point.

When using another language, you have to do that on your own, and the best way to do it of course depends on your application. But it's entirely feasible, as the fact demonstrates that there are non-Python activities shipping on XOs.
