Hmm, is this a subtle suggestion that 'you' ('we' as in Apple?) would
prefer to only have ObjC++? Call me paranoid but that thought alone
quite frightening. :-) (But also currently irrelevant.)
Of course not. I assume Apple would like to have a JavObjC++! :-)
A curious idea, would you like to implement it? :-)
Sort of, though I am not particulary fond of Java (less now that I work
with it full-time...).
I did look at the issues a little when I learned about gcj, and it
seemed quite possible to integrate the gcj and Objective-C runtimes
with only fairly minor tweaks.
Having worked extensively with Squeak and created the CocoaSqueak VM,
integration with Smalltalk (or a simplified Objective-Smalltalk) also
looks like a lovely option.
Anyway, I see that the integrated runtime job is no longer on offer...
