I know that thread ;) That's all about "external" scripting (using dcop), or 
just displaying stdout output of scripts. That's the easy one .

As Adam Treat mentioned, I'd like to extend the plugin api, which is only 
exposed to C++ classes at the moment, to make it possible for any language 
running with mono to integrate widgets, windows, menu actions, .... into the 
Those GUI elements need to be in the kate main thread or some of them could be 
created external as own windows and reparented :( . I don't like the second 
solution, because it's not very clean and doesn't allow the full 
functionallity, a c++ plugin could use

Kind regards
