It is amusing to read this discussion. We have had more or less
the same one every year since 1996 :-} It always comes back
to the same two points:

 1. you can't guarentee any software being installed on a *nix box 
except shell
 2. you can't provide any more software (perl, python etc) on the CD without
   unbearable issues of compiling for platforms

something has to give, if you want to move forward.
