it's worse than "going all snakey" i'm afraid. i am convinced that KDE's 
adherence to C++ for all 3rd party development is limiting and not very 
healthy for the project. we need a well supported set of bindings in a higher 
level language. i'm a huge fan of Ruby for this, but that may not be the best 
choice. expect more discussion of this at aKademy.

in plasma, we will have applet bindings available for: ECMA script (via 
kjsembed), Ruby, Python and Java. i can say this with some degree of 
confidence since i already have individuals who have stepped up and committed 
to doing each of these sets of bindings. the only one that will likely be an 
absolute requirement is kjsembed, however. the rest will be run-time 

i understand that this will possibly make life a bit different for packagers, 
but i also firmly believe it will make life much better for developers and 
thereby the users.

well, i think you're a bit late for being the founder of said page, but you 
could always join the yahoo! group! dedicated to discussing it ;P
