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.
