Aloha Luis,

The babel documentation at
http://orgmode.org/worg/org-contrib/babel/languages.html encourages
developers to take the steps necessary to include ob-* language support
in the Org mode core.

ob-mathomatic, ob-tcl, ob-jlang, and ob-newlisp sound like fine
additions to me.  I think they should be available from Org mode.

Maintenance seems always to be an issue.  Several language support files
currently lack a maintainer.  Would you be able to maintain those files
if they go into core?

All the best,
