My hunch is that if we are planing for the long run one might want to
conciser implementing in Julia.
The reason that I suggest Julia's consideration is that it's implements
have seen the light regarding
multiple dispatch generic functions within the framework of a strong semi
dynamic type system.
Stostrup and his team at Texas A and M seem to also be taking C++ in a
similar direction...so in the longer run a properly restricted (safe)
subset of C++ might also be a viable option...
If using a safe subset of C++ you might also want to consult with the Andrei
Alexandrescu <http://erdani.com/> and Walter
of the D_Programming language <http://dlang.org/> he is also a C++
guy...who seems to know of most of C++'s issues...
In summary I would recommend writing in a safe (compiler enforced)
dialect of C++... Not the classic close to the metal C super-set...
If there are still security related issues that need to be addressed...
I would work with Bjarne Stroustrup <http://www.stroustrup.com/>, his team
at Texas A&M University <http://engineering.tamu.edu/cse/>, along with
Andrei and Walter mentoned above.... I gather they share your objectives.
Hope this helps
