Hi Bertrand,
 in principle yes even if right now I’m busy hacking the Qt port to track down 
some bugs and update to Qt 5.0. I would also try to replace Guile with s7 
Scheme which seems more easy to maintain and as fast (wrt. Guile 1.8).

At some point I though a bit about the plugins and felt that TeXmacs need to 
support the jupyter protocol (https://jupyter.org), this would make it a 
perfect frontend for iPython and iHaskell for example but we will give us 
access to many other systems supporting that protocol, see for example this 
list of maintained kernels for jupyter:


It would make perfect sense to me and does not seem so difficult.
