We are hoping that the best contributions have yet to be made.
Folks on the list are already talking about adding Python,
Perl, and improved Tcl support. We are really excited about
the possibilities that opens up for cross language tools.

Sounds like a bug. Java's interface types are kind of like
multiple inheritance in C++, so we should use that same
sort of metaphor. Why don't you take a shot at fixing
it? You will have to much around with the Java parser
to see if that is where the problem is. Post a patch
to the list when you get it working.
