sufficient for KOffice compared to ruby and python, is that neither of them
comes with a sufficient standard library or can compete against the vast
amount of libraries available for ruby and python. So while for drawing a
kind of application.
Anyway for that matter, koffice at least will support multilanguage scripting
(including js, ruby and python), now for the rest of KDE it's up to you (just
offering the possibility won't increase the "bloatness" of KDE, or decrease
the space of "kdebase").
