For those of us who are going to continue to increase our triangle counts,
yes it is a concern. But if we can find a way to do those parts of the code
in C++, and gracefully integrate them, the concern goes away.

C++ is appropriate for low-level AI, such as pathfinding and terrain
analysis. I would not want to do high level AI in C++, and probably game
logic would be better done in something else. The question is, what price
do you pay for integration?

Yes it is, but you didn't write a big system architecture in 72 hours.

80% is gobbledygook we make up inside our own heads.
