Our current policy on bindings is this:
* We're committed to insanely great Python support throughout
Ubuntu, and will ship a bunch of useful Python modules and
bindings in the default Desktop install to enable that.
* We'll support modules and bindings for other languages when they
are required by cool applications that we don't want to pass up.
* We will provide lots of help to interested maintainers who want
to support their favourite language modules, bindings and apps
that use them in universe.
So, I think that's a pretty good set of goals... But if there's any
reason to change this policy, we'll have to leave that for Hoary. ;-)
