Not C just for opto, but basic C for the later project utilization.
It's just a quick spit out of the other languages which are
interpolated to C string on the page.

A simple C string with everything else you want in the higher level
languages. But then you decide a few php results are slow, so you use
a C function. Then you decide a few python functions are slow when
returning a js mouseover, so you use a js or C function.

It's just a simple platform to use the higher level 'prototype' languages on.
