I don't know what the official line is, but I am intending to add Lua
support to some extent to my build. Shame BGE is such an integral part
of Blender now, as removing Python completely would be an interesting

On the other hand, having the capability to run multiple scripting
languages is going to cause issues for the end-user who uses the
Scripting Window. Having multiple languages is just going to confuse
people when looking at running a sample script they find online. As much
as I have reservations about Python, it is the default language now and
this is not likely to change.
