I guess there isn't any real perfect solution to this, just to explain
I see Programming/Scripting as being more user oriented than
compiled/interpreted which is specific implementation oriented, and as
has been said there can be lots of implementations.

Not that everyone might agree with the current division, I'm sure the
folks at Ericsson who are programming telephone switches in Erlang
might see it as more than a scripting language :-)  But programming is
too long already.
