C++ hell

Augh! When you've become used to Python[Wiki]'s ability to pass callbacks as self.method, the whole C++ functor thing really chafes.

Functional Style in C++ is a must-read.

Or just embed python in your C++ program and use it for callbacks?

Yeah, there are architectural issues here that may evolve... [grin]. As much as I'm in the swing of C++, there's a lot to be said for writing higher level code in Python[Wiki] or Perl[Wiki], and while we're not in a place to be making such changes right now it's a direction that's up on my list of ways to change the structure of this system.
