	Quite; cf. such uncertainty - it probably makes considerable sense to
look into a migration strategy from Java to (insert anything else). Some
candidates might be python for the more scripty pieces (though I hate
non-typed languages), and/or native C++.

	Hopefully we can overcome the pain of C++ by bundling core extensions
that people really need, and thus building them as part of the product.
