Yes maybe but I think this shouldn't be the write way.

If this would be the case we would ahve more programms
written in different languages but in the same purpose.
There are some but in my opinion this is *not* the way open
source works in general. The program is designed for users
and users in most cases don't recognize in which language
the program is written.

And I don't think that there aren't enough skilled people who
aren't able to provide patches.

VIM has two modes - the one in which it beeps 
and the one in which it doesn't -- encrypted mail preferred
