IMVHO embedding Lua in sysinst may be worthwhile. Quick look at
imapfilter project can give an idea about Lua's strength.
PS. I'm against XML: parsing (in most libraries) is memory hungry
and editing is inconvenient for humans. If Lua isn't acceptable,
maybe YAML or JSON should be considered? The first one is pretty
easy to use (at least with simple cases). Also most popular languages
has libraries for manipulating both formats.
