I hope so :)

For example: http://sqliteman.com
The rule is that if you only change data and not adding tables or
columns, kexi can see the changes.

Yes we have experimental python or javascript bindings visible as
Script objects in Kexi.
Ruby could work too. What is depends on distribution you use.

We're aiming to switch to solid, stable (as in API) javascript
scripting with complete object model.
This is going to use QtScript with webkit javascriptcore or with
google v8 engine.

This is all very interesting. It would be possible to have proper
integration if we have any contributor in this area.
Even starting with small thing would make a difference. The one who is
interested would decide on the future shape of Kexi :)
