The one big one that got me hooked is the ability for any language to use
code from any other language. This will stop the code duplication. EX:
odbc for C/C++, jdbc for java, perls database api, python's db api, etc.
This should greatly accelerate development times, especially on the Open
Source front, since we wont have to reinvent the wheel for every single
language we want to use. Write a class once, and use it everywhere.
