First, I strongly disagree with voting here for reasons that I hope others
will elaborate on. Second, I think that squeezing all possible language
bindings into a project is also unproductive. What is it that the webkit
people did for this? I think they had gobject bindings, and then all of the
languages have their own gobject bridge to take advantage of that.
Naturally the downside here is that gobject means you have a gtk
dependency. A similar solution would be interesting and worth exploring,
though, especially if something similar without gtk exists.
