What is the best programming language to use with Rhino?

I see a lot of references to Python and know nothing about it. The reason I’m asking is that I’m about to undertake writing code for a brute-force number cruncher using nothing more sophisticated than nested if-then-else statements and real variables and I have to choose between relearning everything I’ve forgotten about C++ or learn something new that also plays well with Rhino.

I’d go with python. Easy to lean, works well with rhino.
Note that the flavor of python supported by rhino (ironpython) does not support all third party libraries that exist for python though.

Thank you.
