I see this assertion a lot, and I really don't know whether it's right. There
who want to write a script to automate something in KMail? I don't doubt that
and OS X's desktop widgets?
The question is really: for whom do want to make our applications scriptable?
Who are going to write the scripts? Scripters who provide something
ready-made to users, corporate cubby-hole developers who are asked to fit the
desktop to corporate guidelines and processes, ditto, but who need to plug in
applications to company servers, users themselves who need an automated sheet
generator for their role-playing game?
For plasma, it'll be the kind of scripter who is now writing superkaramba
will be his or her natural language since it's the same on OS X for the same
kind of thing.
For KOffice we really need a Basic interpreter to slot into Kross: that's what
office users are familiar with. But at the same time, to empower the largest
number of users, we want to make it possible for every domain specialist who
happens to use KOffice to use the language they already know.
And so on... But I think that it's not a question that's been well-researched
