I think the biggest problem with Javascript is that if you want to do
something more than standard set of actions prepared by author of
scripting plugin for application (like open your own configuration
window, message box, run some DCOP command, etc.), then you must use
Qt/KDE binding and AFAIK there is no Qt binding for JavaScript. Or am I
missing something?
