I'm sure many users would be happy if firefox supported their favorite
scripting language like elinks browser does ( ).

I believe that many scripting languages will fit into langbinding model.
Some time ago I scanned quickly Ruby, Python, Lua, COBRAScript, Java and C#
to see they type system. No wonder there are many differences between them
but in spite of this they share common properties as well.
First, we should analyze as many languages as we can and to classify them.
Then, language model for langbinding should be introduced. It would help
users to get the whole picture rather quickly and figure out how to develop
C++ classes in langbinding neutral manner. It would help backend writers to
fit they language into the model and they would need to document only
language-specific features.
