C++ (with the STL) has some pretty darn useful list functions.  It's not as  
low level and sucked down as you seem to think....

Personally, I'd rather have that 90% of Ardour be nice and quick.  I don't  
care what anyone says, GUIs written in scripting language are noticably slower  
than GUIs written in a compiled language like C or C++.
