If we continue to think 100% generically we'll never hold all the
permutations in Wiki, let alone out heads, and we'll fluster ourselves
paralysis. It is clear that Java has a set of requirements, a style, that do
not fit other languages. We can't do it all.
I feel we could/should unashamedly complete our thoughts on Java, then go
and recruit some per-language specialists to chime in on their flavour.
Maybe we'll have one repository 'class' with per language sub-classes. Let's
mature what we can agree upon before we specialize & determine what we
can't. [If we have a Java repository separate from a C++ one, so be it, but
N better than 0. Heck, separate might be easiest management anyway.]
Just my two cents...
