True, but have you ever tried to use any of it? I did and I have to say
that 99% of them are half baked solutions just to satisfy examples.
Even for more popular languages, situation is not better much; the
only solid implementations (which could handle even dark corners)
I found are ctypes for python and cffi for CL.

Really? These days I'm using Selenium for some u.tests; google
Selenium examples in java (or ruby/python) and see how much of
it you can express with clj-webdriver (Clojure wrapper). Or if I we
move to Swing-land, I can talk about it all day long ;)
