hi there, i planned to offer scripting support to Winamp too, but at first i had thought about using SpiderMonkey as a scripting engine (Mozilla's javascript), and eventually switched to LUA.
Unhappily, my job has been taking too much time, so that project is stalling in a very early stage.

SM or LUA would allow a feature that may not be available with the VB runtime: running scripts in a sandbox disallowing unsecure operations in a customizable way.
I don't want to download a script that will install some spyware using kinda obfuscated code like VB code can be (especially with CreateObject() )
