Do more programs need scripting support?

I've been playing around with awesome wm, uzbl and doing quite a bit of reading and thinking. Do more programs need scripting support? I've found that being able to tell a program what I want it to do specificially has made life much easier. I'm finding some things (my prefered editors, ed and vim) are starting to seem a little limited since what they can do is fairly well defined and hard to change.

Has anyone else noticed this?

Well then you'll be happy to find out that vim at least does have scripting support in several languages and quite a few distros have a separate plugins package for it, even an add-on manager
