It may be worth mentioning that D also works well with straight C libs,
but can't interface directly with C++. Its in the same league as C++ in
terms of speed, while arguably being more elegant.
I haven't worked with scheme since the 80's, in my intro to programming
course! I'll have to check that out, I remember it being a very
flexible and fun language. IIRC the gimp uses it in its scripting system.
