That's sarcastic. At least it was meant sarcastic.

Not me. It's only that some C++ evangelists are preaching how OO C++ is,
and at the same time saying things like ObjC is not OO.
To put bluntly, I'm not really a C++ fan. (I've tutored C++ at college,
and I probably usually know why I dislike C++.)

But this is not really gnome specific. gtk/gnome is already language
independent, and it doesn't seem likely that the maintainers will do
something too stupid in this area :)
