I'd be inclined to vote for this approach also. I am not an expert on
both (or either) code base (Yes, I did get your documentation Joe, just
haven't through it yet :-). But from what I have seen of both I think
Project B is a lot farther along and would make a better starting point.
We can then build adapters to make the interface that will keep the C++
guys happy.

Just my $0.02,
