Python, but I'm sure there are Ruby and Perl people lurking.

Perhaps not actually include the runtime, but at the very least 
annotating parts of the code base to make it easier to generate 
bindings for those language. Then, a tool could be run on that to 
generate the bindings.  Although I'd be happier if that were to be 
integrated to the system directly -- possibly as a separate download. 
But definitely maintained by Haiku. (*volounteering*)
