Well.. i personally think that programs that need to be fast (package
management needs that in my opinion) can't be written in python simply
because it's not the fastest language if you go for performance. but i
understand why people use it and am thinking of learning it and that's
mainly because python is relatively easy to learn and very powerful.

I might learn python sometime.. or not..
i'm not sure about it all.
Anyway if i start with something like this to get that mockup as a
working app than i will ofcause edit one of the existing frontends
(likely PackageKit).

Perhaps anyone can code those mockups in python? ^_^
