They're fine for things like this, I think.  I would personally use a 
Python product, but that is a decision based on my own purely subjective 
point of view.

Rome wasn't built in a day. ;-)  All I can do is encourage you to stick 
it out.  I think you should probably describe your actual nuts-and-bolts 
problems a little better to the list so folks can help.  It's difficult 
to provide any constructive feedback on the problems as you've explained 
them so far.
