It seems like a couple of the languages have some idiosyncrasies that
mean that it's not really invisible what language you're using, JSR or
not.  Dave said there was a different way to call the Python to get a
result back, so we might be able to avoid that.  I'm not sure about
the Ruby -- it looks like the context variables become global

One possibility in both cases might be to put some extra script code
around what the user provides, but I'm afraid that might only work in
simple cases (e.g. not if the user's "expression" includes functions
and whatnot).  Maybe a simple helper function would work, where our
helper function invokes the user's script (with "eval" or whatever)
and captures the result and then gives us back the result in some way
we expect?
