Most likely each of the 15 developers would revolt if the Python
language (or really _any_ language) was mandated.

Xastir is currently written in C.  We did a vote (last year?) on
which language we wanted to use for the Xastir re-write:  Hands-down
it was C++.

Up in the air yet is which windowing toolkit to use.  For the next
go-around we'd like to use something that's cross-platform.  We
currently use OpenMotif or Lesstif.

Further discussions regarding any of the above should occur on the
Xastir-Dev or Xastir lists:  http://www.xastir.org
