Re: dual-language systems increase modularity

Hi, Shriram: Agreed w/ what you have to say about glue vs. "strong-type"
scripting (i.e. where both caller/callee have intimate knowledge of types
on either side).

Could you say more about what you meant here?

To me -- it has always been somewhat interesting that introspection
abilities and debugging API's.. (both of which "expose" aspects of
typing and control-flow across code/program boundaries) often are
not designed in an integrated before-the-fact fashion. Once again
an instance where the language/tools boundary causes more lossage
than winnage.
