I don't just want *object* independence. If all I could do with my API was swap out one OO programming language for another, that would be insufficient. The choice of computational model is a detail, the choice of which should be deferred as long as possible; a dependency which software should be fully insulated from.
My API should be able to support backends that are functional programming languages or logic languages, not just object languages.
