I have seen python guis. Perl is available but i don't know if there are 
gtk bindngs available.
The python bindings seem to be more or less complete.

Python will be the prefered language for scripting as it looks now. So 
you can expect full support there at least in the future.

But i have to say, i have no idea how far pyhon is specificly on 
openmoko. It might even be fully complete yet.

Rumors have that GSM is working stable now. When i checked last weeks it 
was not (yet).

Early software early hardware. Both will improve in time...

Better hardware. (see previous mails on ths thread)

You can start developing in qemu or native builds.

If you think you can live without getting the developer hardware now, i 
suggest you wait.
