One cannot help but wonder why. On the face of it your request seems
absurd. What would you possibly gain from this? One might just as
happily mix:

  perl & python
  C++ & ObjC
  Dylan & Dylan
  Peanut Butter & Chocolate

To use the well known Python school of extention design, I'll request
you demonstrate that this would benefit STk. Include proof.
