While working on my wiki page about a new Writer toolbar, I realized
that independently of my proposal, I believe it makes sense for
LibreOffice to prefer Python. I see how LO is heading in this
direction, but you could be explicit about it, create more workitems,
perhaps track it like you do the German comments and uncalled
functions, etc.

It could also be helpful to have a handbook for PyUno... ;-)

The point is that a *lot* of users of Python (and there are bulkloads
out there) are non-developers who don't give a darn for Java or VBA
(because those don't provide what these users need) and who might have
never even learned C++.

So without specific documentation they're essentially stalled, while
with a handbook, you could get a lot of helpers to implement additions
in Python.

Looks like a classic "multiplier" situation to me.

Is there a bug about this? Is the handbook to be built by the doc
team? It seems like a lack of samples / handbook could be a big reason
for the stalled pipeline of Python patches.

Warm regards,
