Not to muddy the waters further, but actually it looks like a successor
to UFFI might be forming in the guise of CFFI, with the sweetener of an
automatic tool to generate bindings for C/C++ libraries called
Verrazano. This effort is the result of one of the other Summer of
Code projects sponsored by Google.
I'm hoping the FLTK FFI bindings might prove a viable cross platform
backend target for McCLIM in the future.
