IMVHO embedding Lua in sysinst may be worthwhile. Quick look at
imapfilter project[1] 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[2] 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.
