on the presence of one binding - pygtk. We reached consensus a while ago
that python was an acceptable programming language for the implementation
of applications in the Desktop release set. There were no big objections
to python in general.

Now the question is whether other programming languages (and their
bindings) are acceptable. As before there are still a lot of people who
think it would make development difficult if we use multiple programming

And while there were almost no objections to Python, there are clearly
many objections to Mono.

So it's not that simple. These are two separate questions.
