 From what you say, CPython would be a better fit than IP (IMO) -- unless your target audience is people who work at big companies with very anal system administrators (they might disallow install of anything that isn't "100% managed code).

You could also consider, if you're about to learn a new language to do this project, Ruby -- though Python (CPython in particular) is considerably more mature.

Good luck...
