As for Qt... nothing says you have to use Qt directly. In fact, given
the upcoming MythUI, it's probably better to use Myth API functions
rather than Qt.
For non-gui functions, you can use Qt or not.
Technically, there's no reason a plugin couldn't be written in another
language, as long as the appropriate entry points are exported.
However, if you do so you won't be able to access any core Myth
functionality like the UI elements, LIRC input handling, database
routines, etc. Also I doubt that such a plugin would be accepted into
the official Myth souce base.
