Can you link to that quote, because I can find where he's said that in
relation to the lack of a processor written in C++?

IBM and Intel now have XSLT 2.0 processors, so they must have had a
compelling reason.

XOM is written by Elliotte Rusty Harold, so the above quote would be
strange if it were correct.
