We can release a C version, but that means no new features, no significant bugfixes and no speed improvements for a year. And we need you to fund me to the tune of $1,250/month for all that time. And finally it would be much easier to go to C++ and it would run on almost as many platforms. A year is probably an underestimate for C, since it'd have to be pretty much a complete reimplementation.
