Could you say more about this?  Do you have any idea when the decision
about C++ is likely to be made?  At what point does it make most sense
to make the argument for or against?  Can you suggest a good way for
us to be able to make more substantial arguments either way?

Can you say a little more about your impression of the previous Cython
refactor and why it was not successful?

Thanks a lot,
