I am very interested. My company uses a Prolog engine from a C++ program
to solve a problem that is very hard to solve in C++ (I can't explain
this in detail here).
Anyways, the inclusion of this Prolog engine caused various problems
- the biggest being hard-to-reproduce program crashes when we did not use
the library _very_ carefully.

So, if there was a C++ library that we could use for these tasks, we
would surely consider it.
