Most of the numerical parts of Octave are also written in Fortran, so
I don't think this is much of a problem.

I am planning to focus on graphics and GUI stuff for 2.1 and am
currently leaning toward plplot and Tcl/Tk, though I don't want Octave
to depend on either.  I am hoping to make it possible for people to
use whatever graphics and GUI tools they prefer, just by writing a
relatively small amount of C++ code.
