I can certainly go for that. C is faster and the codebase can be more consistent (and more portable to non-Unix). My concern was that if we're going to be adding additional languages, some previous warning would be appropriate. As I said, I wouldn't be able to deploy a git using Ruby immediately, and I'm sure I'm not the only one. If we're not going to be adding another language, then obviously the issue becomes moot. -- brian m. carlson / brian with sandals: Houston, Texas, US +1 832 623 2791 | http://www.crustytoothpaste.net/~bmc | My opinion only OpenPGP: RSA v4 4096b: 88AC E9B2 9196 305B A994 7552 F1BA 225C 0223 B187
