I'm not sure about that as I never tried Vala, only read about it. In
the end I think it's important to get the job done. If you are willing
to implement it and you want to use Vala I definitively would prefer
that over someone who would do it in C but has not time :)

Besides that I would prefer C code here, because it's not that much code
and the code might be used by many people. So good compatibility and
well know practices seem to be important here. Also a future integration
into Hildon is probably easier if we don't use Vala.
