In the future: yes.
The problem is that it would generate a dependency on kdebindings3 or some
other bindings (PyKDE for example), which kdeedu currently doesn't have. it
would be a good idea to re-sort the inter-module dependencies so that this is
sanely possible. (right now kdebindings depends on a lot of other modules.).
Actually, the biggest discussion seemed to have evolved around "which
apparently some people favor.
for me, this is not the most critical question right now, but there is for
sure one language that beats all others due to non-technical reasons: python.
It has commercial support, a strong community and real life applications
build upon it (eric4, kumula, etc). I've not seen that so far for ruby or
Anyhow, I would be more than happy about a KDE application written in java or
C# as well (which don't that high runtime overhead like python apps have).
