That was my first thought, too - when a researcher at my institute
described that it was only "straightforward" in C++.
However, I then attended a talk by one of the people who actually worked
on it - and from that talk it seemed they only used run-of-the-mill
object oriented programming features of C++.
Unfortunately, the only way forward would be to study the code - and I
do not have time to do that ...
