much ado

The current language discussion on p.g.o is mind-numbingly boring. For the platform libraries we have C, which is easily bindable. For communicating between services we have D-BUS, which is also easily bindable. But to put anything in the platform beyond easily-bindable libraries is just dumb.

Beyond that (e.g. for the desktop), it means that people can write apps in whatever language they like. Even if it's Java. Really, it's ok.

In semi-related news, Juri Pakaste recently released a speed reader for Gnome, written with guile-gnome. And, kudos to Andreas Rottmann, who did the heavy lifting to push guile-gnome into Sarge.
