I do not agree on that point: Nobody is forced to used multiple 
inheritance, and when it is the right solution to be used, then it would 
be a shame not to have it. I remember the pain it was to implement some 
CORBA stuff using Java (moreover compared to C++) because of the lack of 
multiple inheritance.
