I don't expect that answer, but usually if you have a C library you
can make binding in almost all language for such library.

To use .Net you need the framework, that not everyone has installed
and isn't available for every plataform (I know about Mono but isn't
complete yet).

I'm using Twisted now, that's complete Internet Framework, an easy to
develop, but you have to install Python in order to distribute an

Huge libraries like xerces and ACE make difficult to distribute an application.
