on number of copies you might be right; but it's far too common to see

Yes. Or Scheme (Gimp), Tcl (forgot which soft), a dialect of Pascal (IzArc, Inno Setup) or even some self-made language (urgh!).
Some are easier to learn than others (I put Lua in the "easy" section!).

Well, I found my trip to learn Scheme to improve a Gimp script interesting and a good learning experience (discovered the concept of operator as function, seen again in Scala), although I probably forgot most of it already...
