i don't think it's cheating ;) but it would be even more cool if someone other 
than the bindings people would write such an app. it would probably exercise 
the bindings better, take load off of your shoulders and demonstrate true 
demand. but however the applications arrive, they arrive =)

once we have the bindings in a state you guys are happy with, we should 
certainly start some outreach to the Ruby community to get people using them. 
i'm sure you folks have the best ideas on how to do that. it does seem that 
in the past our bindings have been kept under a rock, and they deserve a lot 
more than that.

yes, i would hope someone who cares about Python in KDE would do the outreach. 
i hear there are a few such people around these parts.
