Ah, one more thing that I don't understand about the move to C/C++: Perl is 
good for text-oriented tasks, and ALFS is clearly 100% text-oriented, we 
could almost say mathless. And ALFS has tremendous support for XML, more than 
we could ever hope for. And Perl is good. And we don't need speed, so C/C++ 
would only make things harder to do, because ALFS is, relatively speaking, an 
easy thing.
