Gecko has this now for DOM interfaces, mostly.  It's a noticeable 
performance and memory penalty, especially as features need to be added, 
due to the way it's implemented right now on top of C++ vtables.  As 
Benjamin mentioned, we will most likely stop doing this by default for 
the core DOM interfaces.  Someone could still provide a stable ABI in 
some form of C++ binding, but it's not clear to me that we plan to do 
that ourselves.  Patches accepted, probably.
