Fair enough. Thank you for your grace.

Hmm... that's certainly worth exploring. It unfortunately means we'd
have to maintain the C++ wrapper, the SWIG bindings of that wrapper,
and then (probably) some addition language-specific cleanup code atop
that. But if the C++ API coverage is superb, maybe that's not such a
terrible thing.
