This is more an argument against mixed language programming
than against Inline.
Inline makes it easier (a no-brainer) to locate the code which
has to be changed, to determine what has to be recompiled,
where (and how) it has to be installed, and so on.

I've played a little bit with the idea and I certainly
like it.
