With all due respect : it's not silly to assume that, on the contrary 
it's just common sense (and my own experience on the matter).

If PyKDE would be used more widely, I'd expect that the maintainer would 
suddenly start to receive a whole lot more bug reports and support 
requests that he currently does. It's quite unlikely that his workload 
will remain constant. And, having taken a quick look at PyKDE's doc, it 
clearly still needs a lot of work. No classes are documented, and many 
should be removed as they don't make sense in a binding.
