I don't think KHTML exposes access to the DOM if thats what you mean.

That totally depends on KDE/Qt. AFAIK Qt apps look native on Windows,
not sure about MacOS as I don't have a Mac

Well, PyKDE3 is relatively easy to install and AFAIK Kubuntu even comes
with a packaged pykde. As for PyKDE4, time will tell, there's not a
