If I'm understanding the suggestion, ideas like this have been around
for a long time.  People recognize that algorithms have a
language-independent character, and it irks them to tie the algorithm
down to a particular language when they feel it should be readily
implementable in any other language.  The details --- that is, the
part you're leaving to others --- are the challenge.  :)
