there's probably also value to having long lived workspace apps written in 
compiled languages (they all are right now) as well ... so there are probably 
some kdebase-workspace considerations .... 

(that said, plasma will use scripting for add-ons more and more)

i don't think, however, that a print configuration matters one whit as to 
which language (of the ones that meet the criterion you laid out) it is 
implemented in
