If KDE gone a mentoring org in GSoC 2012, I will submit a project as
student to python backend in Cantor. I think that my experience with
Scilab team in last year, that resulted in Scilab backend to Cantor,
will help in this work.

Then, someone available to mentor this project? Because of my previous
experience, I think that mentor need not to know Cantor code in depth.

I will study to write a nice project to KDE. ;)
