That would be a huge extension =o)
I have two "full" linux systems which I use for compiling applications (I don't know programming), so gcc and headers just haven't been a worthwhile venture for me.
I do, however, have a mild obsession with scripting. I'm not saying I'm damn good, but i enjoy it. Bash is essential. I've been slowly building my knowledge of Flua for the past few months, and a couple of days ago also began to pick up Tcl (look for an updated tcltk extension soon). The thing about these two that really impresses me is they can be used either as straight script in the way Bash is used, or can be extended to provide a way to build graphical interfaces....i think it's amazing that you can to this using a text file, no compiling needed.
I don't really have any desire at this point to get into more complex programming, but there is a lot a person can do with a little scripting knowledge and some creativity.
