[I believe you might change your opinion after writing a C++ parser, but that
is even more off-topic. :-]

Please help improve gtk--/gnome-- - we don't need any more language wars. If
people want to use C++ with GNOME, while you can't ask us to ourselves, you
can certainly expect reasonable support from the non-C++ developers to get
your patches integrated. I and all the other GNOME hackers have tried to make
GNOME accessable from all languages - now it's your turn to fix what you
don't like.

To other potential follow-up-ers out there - please end this thread before it
goes any further. Those wishing to announce releases of actual code for
language bindings should feel free to use gnome-announce-list...
