C-- is a separate project AFAIK (although one of the files in "asmcomp" 
mentions it). C-- is in its infancy, as I understand.

I just read QPL. It does not define the concept of "language" or "other 
language". IANAL, but I think QPL is fairly reasonable. It's like GPL, but 
modifications have to be "patches" and the "original developer" gets to 
distribute your "patches" under other licenses as well.
