Please share details. I haven't seen documentation of this before.

I don't think so. In some apps maybe, but not generally. Maintaining code paths is a hassle. We do not want to do it. Look at what is happening to Fortran. The forces towards standardization are very strong.

This is also news to me. Can you provide some pointers to Cg and it's history?
