Well we can do that already - if we can work out how to solve C++ symbol
mangling. We can write plugin's in python and perl too. In addition people
can pretty be certain that if MONO actually does work out gnumeric will be
made available via it's services. All in all this all seems like a good
reason for us to continue to develop a state of the word processor in C++.
If MONO/dotGNU develops - great we can reuse the code we've already
