Yes I agree. And in the light of what Richard Dale said:

The kross library works using dbus binding. Which means, that with kross you 
get a good dbus binding, and support for any languages supported by it.

And as with kross, interpreters (python, ruby and kjs) are plugins, they are 
loaded only if the given language is installed on the machine. So no extra 
bloat if you don't want those other languages on your computer.
