I agree with your solution however I do take exception to the generalization that all hard core Unix people code in C.

Ada2005 is my favourite language. I've been using it since it was Ada83. :-)

Cheers,

Nick

Well, Ada is nice! in fact, I like the fact that you can find Forth code in FreeBSD's bootloader and Modula-3 in CVSup. These were chosen for a very good reason.
Maybe in FreeBSD it's different. I've used more OpenBSD, where's there's a definite trend to keep it simple and small (C). For better or for worse, and I can't really see much non-C get in the core system. Maybe FreeBSD people are more open, it sure looks that way. In fact, this C-fixation is an aspect I don't like in OpenBSD, but I understand the rationale.
