The loader is the final piece in the puzzle that was preventing  
people from writing native objects in other languages.  Yes, you

As we enjoy great advantages from inventions of others, we should be  
glad of an opportunity to serve others by any invention of ours; and  
this we should do freely and generously.         - Benjamin Franklin
