        Well, I more or less like the current software. Even if the C++ and Java lists are the same, the shouldnt have to be. Rather, they can be extended, if needed. So, what I would change is :

        1. Create a "universal" list for all languages. These datatypes always appear in the pull down menu. These are probably the list of data types we currently have.

        2. Allow individual languages to extend the list of datatypes, as needed.

        3. Allow the user to extend the list of datatypes, as desired.

        2 and 3 more or less already exist. 1 is just an internal detail that would take minimal coding I think.
