with the QtScript generator it's easy to get full access to Qt (and Qt based 
code) via  EcmaScript. it's certainly not identical to Vala, but offers a lot 
of the same sorts of benefits (though Qt also does not have some of the 
defects that Vala addresses lower in its stack)

anyways, i agree that Vala is just fine for those who want to use it. that's 
not really the point here, of course :)
