	The languages don't matter, it's just the protocols.  I've seen a  
lot of SOAP-based protocols that you pretty much couldn't use outside  
of java, and I've implemented custom binary protocols for which I've  
got implementations in at least three languages.

	If the goal of the protocol is interoperability, and you actually  
try to achieve that goal, then you should be fine.
