I should add that the design of the CLI restricts many languages to a subset 
of their usual features.

For example, MS Managed Extensions for C++ permits code to be compiled to a 
combination of managed and unmanaged code. The sections that are designed to 
be compiled to managed code cannot use copy constructors, cannot use multiple 
inheritance of implementation, etc.
