Agreed, that's my point of view indeed.
By the way, with theme packaging enabled too, PlasMate won't be a complete
Plasma development tool because we still don't provide any Wallpaper plugin
support. And, afaik, there is only python bindings for that (apart from c++,
So, should we discard theming support, or add Wallpaper support too (for
python at least, and wait for 4.5SC to get js and ruby bindings) and make
plasmate complete ?
Or simply, release it as it is now, refining the actual features, and listen
to users feedbacks ?

Nice, it's time to ping kde-bindings guys then :)
