It might seems to be a little bit off-topic, but why choose a scripting 
language when you can have all of them ? (currently only Python and Ruby, but 
support for kjs/kjsembed is planned, and why not lisp ?). kross is a library 
orignially developed inside kexi and now move in kofficelib and uses in 
krita, that allow to easily add scripting to an application and design to be 
independant of interpreters and scripting language.
