[kde-edu]: kig & Python scripting

I'm trying to find out whether I'm doing something wrong, or just have 
an incorrect version.  The Kig documentation says that it's possible to 
use Python scripting via the "Objects > Other > Python Script" menu 
option, but I don't find that option.  I have version 0.9.0.

By the way, why is it that this app (and so many others) are glommed 
together into a single RPM package?  Doesn't that make it a lot harder 
to keep each package up to date (because you have to wait for all the 
others to justify releasing a big new package), and doesn't it tend to 
make each particular app get "swallowed up" by the package identity?

I can't find a separate web page for Kig itself, just a sort of 
"directory" page in the larger "kde-edu" package.  Is this the only 
place to find info about the project?  Is there a place I can find 
newer/alternate versions of the project that can be installed as 
separate RPMs without forcing a conflict with the main kde-edu package?

Or if the only way for me to get the Python scripting support is to 
recompile separately, can I do that in a way that doesn't require me to 
force a conflict with kde-edu?
