In an ideal world, yes, perhaps. But we don't have that luxury: I much prefer 
having the necessary applications written at all to not having them written 
because the person who has time & inclination to do something cannot stomach 

There is a large class of applications for which it is silly to use anything 
as time consuming as C++: that class includes all applications that can make 
do with standard widgets, that don't have to do complex painting.
