Do you mean that multiple languages should support the RPC protocol? Does LabView count? We currently have an embedded (C) version and a labview one.

I was looking to make the C++ api flexible enough to support any protocol, the fact that we have developed a light-weight low bandwidth protocol should not distract from the real potential of the API to support any protocol backend.

That said, I do hope that the meta information would make it easy to bind scripting languages to our C++ code.
