I used to be more interested in writing desktop applications, and I would have wanted to do this in Python. Admittedly, you could do this with PyQt/PyKDE and the corresponding Gtk/GNOME offering, but despite the best efforts of the project maintainers concerned (specifically referring to PyQt/PyKDE here), things never seemed to settle enough to support those projects fully in the underlying system. There were some attempts to make "official" bindings for KDE 3, and Kubuntu did introduce some Python-based components, but I perceive those things to be too little, too late.
