8 I agree with your suggestion. Sorry, I should have made that more clear in the

22 Well, pkgmerge, ebuild and emerge are in python right now too. I don't have a problem
23 if people want to start converting the more stable code to C++. A good start would be
24 env-update and the .tbz2 functions (/usr/lib/python2.0/ Since we're moving to
25 an object framework, I think that C++ would be a better fit than C.
27 If anyone is interested in doing this, please contact me first. Then I'll carefully
28 coordinate my work in python with yours.
