Well, Fabrice you should know how FOSS works.

Demanding leads nowhere. If you want the draktools in python or C or
whatever, start writing them and put your source on some svn/git repo. If
others are interested they will join you and eventually your codebase will
be good enough to replace the current one.

That's how FOSS works. Telling others to do it, doesn't work.
