Once you get over the initial shudders and dry heaves of looking at C  
again, it's really quite nice :)

Kinda like looking at Perl again, but with the ability of really  
messing up memory with a misplaced "->"

In the area of class libs, nothing so far.  We've been talking about  
a few issues related to the class libraries, such as modularity, the  
class library / VM interface, and such.  We've talked about GNU  
Classpath a bit, but there's nothing that would stop someone  
interested in working here on class libraries from doing so.  I'd  
want to make sure that as part of our modularity goals, we can enable  
people who want to use GNU Classpath to do so, and as a practical  
matter, we want to be able to use GNU Classpath right now because  
they are really so far advanced.

Is there something specific that you are interested in wrt class libs?
