Lots of folk will make similar choices.  I heard voices already
pointing out they couldn't use a binding that didn't work on their
old funky nonstandard "C++" system, for example, regardless whether
it's a "blessed" API or not.

That's all I meant whan I said there "_will_" be multiple bindings.
SAX/Java hit a window of opportunity.  SAX/C++ missed one, IMHO,
so it's guaranteed plenty of competition.  Bindings generated right
from the Java code are not, and will not, be the only other options.

p.s. No comments on the CNI binding itself?
