Hi Noah -- Many members of this project are also members of the Apache
OpenOffice project, and they just had their first release today.  So
it is not surprising that your note may have been lost in the
excitement.  Of all the days in the year...

Some quick comments:

You might want to take a look at the Bean Scripting Framework, part of
Apache Commons:

"BSF permits any Java application to be implemented in part (or
dynamically extended) by a language that is embedded within it. This
is achieved by providing an API that permits calling scripting
language engines from within Java, as well as an object registry that
exposes Java objects to these scripting language engines."

I wonder if it would be possible to use BSF to make the DSL approach easier?
