Well Ok, I'll take this for a call to all of the list:

What would you think when Oroborus would be implemented with GCJ (GNU
compiler for java) and then compiled to native code.

The native interface would perhaps be CNI, so it could perhaps be used for C++
programs too.

This would lead to several improvements (mainly better, object orientated
code) and it would help a lot with "plugins" and such stuff.
(java.lang.reflect allows to load classes, even when the main program was
compiled to native code.)

As an alternative I could also use C++ or Objective C for the "next
generation" Oroborus.



P.S.: Please don't tell me that plain C is good, implementing object
orientated things in C is definetely not good.
P.P.S.: I'm not saying that java is the best language or such things, I'm just
evaluationg things and want to take a good start for the new Oroborus.
