You know, it's even worse than that: can you imagine that you can't
extend Emacs in Java?  Try

(defun myCoolAbstractPublicStaticVoidGenericVirtualUnicodeCharacterFactory ()
  ...)

and put some Java code in place of "...".  It won't work!  How tragic!

(SCNR - please, don't get offended;-).  In fact, your question is imho
not an unreasonable one.  And I haven't yet read any answers of
others...)
