From my point of view, i wouldn't want to write a high level management toolstack in C, specially since the API is well defined JSON which is easily available in all high level language out there.

There's a whole world of C based management toolstacks (CIM).

Gratefully I know very little about CIM, but isn't it language independent?

The prominent open source implementation, pegasus, is written in C++.

There is also SFCB which is written in C.

But an awful lot of the providers for pegasus are written in C.

The point is, C is a lowest common denominator and it's important to support in a proper way.

Or are you referring to specific management apps written in C? If they go through CIM, how can they talk qmp?
