Let me use this opportunity to thank all those who make this happen. I have
been using Debian during my studies and now during work for more than 10 years
now. Real console (BRLTTY with speech) and GUI (Orca). Great documentation,
friendly people helping out and a lot of choice. And good to hear that other
distributions apparently also have good people doing the distributor's work

Regarding the original topic. I actually prefer Rust for critical components
for many technical reasons and I could imagine that Python's global
interpreter lock (GIL) is possibly not great for a screen reader either.
However, given the limited resources on a11y, in particular on the GUI, I also
would favour extending Orca. But in the end it is the spare time of people,
and we can probably only start complaining if we actually pay them.
