I'm not quite running away, since I don't do GUIs, and as it seems, things are 
looking up even there.

Heh, I'm afraid this thread has gotten VERY sidetracked. But:

To summarize the actual on-topic posts: You can hack around with borderless 
transparent windows with FOX if you need cross-platform, and later googling 
has shown you can indeed implement gDesklets and Kicker applets in Ruby if 
you can offer cross-platform for the advantages using KDE and GNOME standard 
desktop applet functionality. 

Maybe we could also try giving the SuperKaramba team some hints to provide 
Ruby bindings if they have Python ones already. I haven't done much SWIG, but 
I can't imagine how the languages are different in the aspects that are 
involved in autogenerating bindings.

Anyways, cheers for bringing this back into reality.
