Objective C is essentially C with an object system that uses
Smalltalk-like syntax.  _Incredibly_ simpler than C++'s object system; I
would MUCH rather write Objective C than C++...

It would be expected to be a bit slower than C++ due to more dynamic
handling of method dispatch, although that's probably only by a small
