Spot on Aaron! I'm looking forward to as much discussion as possible at 
aKademy about how we can encourage entry level developers who would never be 
able to understand C++. Whether they like python, ruby or basic best I don't 
know.  C++ is a great language for highly expert people to write libraries 
like the Qt and KDE ones, but terrible for 'normal programmers' who want to 
solve their problems as fast as possible in a RAD environment
