I agree with this. Even though for many languages you dont even need a
legacy-C 
interface. gcc can mix objc and c++ and java freely. For Python and Perl
there is SIP or a 
free tool from boost.org that creates a C intermediate, but it might be
better to provide a 
commandline tool for the scripting languages, because they are not designed
to write 
traditional applications yet. If they were, they had a real native interface
and not only a 
primitive C native interface.
