"Uniform surface syntax" among extension languages doesn't matter that much, what matters much more is uniform(ish) syntax/programming model with whatever the user does all day long. Scheme might be the nicest extension language around, but if you program C all day it will be all Greek to you. Plus what "power users" really do is to tweak the configuration a bit, or add some piece of code found on the Internet. They do not waste a significant slice of their time futzing around with configurations/extensions of the tools.
