(Prolog + LISP + Erlang) with integration issues versus C++

I am a bit dubious about using /too/ many different
languages, on the other hand I am sure doing
everything in C++ can't compete with Lisp and Erlang.
Here are some thoughts you could introduce into the
discussion with your managers:
* Developers will be far more motivated by working with
a technical solution they have chosen and are happy
with. They will rise to the challenge of making it
* C++ is a very tricky language, and it is common for
developers with over 5 years of experience to
continue to introduce very tricky bugs. This is
especially true if you have threads.
* Coding in the same language as the graphics layer
increases the risk of a monolithic, coupled
* Prolog, Lisp and Erlang attract talented, brilliant
programmers ;-) The C++ crowd is far more variegated.
Finally, it sounds as though you need to solve the
problems you are having integrating the code written in
the three languages. Why has this been difficult?
