In my opinion, Core OS, absolutely. There's already a world of pain in
Maemo 5, with Python being just in Extras and thus effectively
prohibited from Ovi Store. Yet, 20% of maemo.org apps are written in
Python, so there's a significant developer base there. We're working on
Harmattan to have the Ovi Store situation changed, and having to revert
the stance once more in MeeGo proper would be, well, quite strange.
Additionally, Per's point of having PyGTK present in Core is a good
reference: I think it would be a rather suboptimal situation if you
could develop MeeGo-compliant Python applications for the Handset UX
only with GTK but not with Qt.
