  I've worked extensively with nodes implemented in C
  (gtknode.googlecode.com) and Emacs Lisp (distel.googlecode.com), and
  it's been pleasant. I've also spent weeks trying to find off-by-one
  errors in linked-in drivers. I wouldn't ever consider using a
  linked-in driver unless forced to do so for performance reasons.
