The maturity of the C++ code base combined with its high level of
developer activity and the desire to use a C++ broker were indeed
major reasons for focusing on the C++ side of the house for WCF
development.

It is also worth pointing out that the WCF implementations from
Microsoft for both MSMQ and WebSphere MQ were implemented using a
managed to native interop layer and relying on the native C++
libraries (from Microsoft and IBM respectively) to do most of the
heavy lifting.  Consequently, using the C++ Qpid libraries in a mixed
managed and native mode implementation was always viewed as a natural
design choice.
