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

The issue with that is serializing the data though. Not all languages
are equal in terms of their ability to serialize data. Erlang works
beautifully with sockets, I can't say the same for C. Although I will
agree that sockets are probably one of the better ways for 2 languages
