Actually, that's not true.

Yes, from Java, and from Objective-C, and from C++, and probably also from  

They are today already available from stuff like Perl, as well.

The interesting thing is, with Objective C, you can actually subclass  
foreign objects in both directions in many of these cases (similar to what  
SOM did under OpenDoc).

I guess most developers will probably use C++, even though that's the  
worst language from those supported.
