Yes, C/C++ would be ideal as low level language combo.

But a hybrid approach is not bad either, e.g. C/C++ for bottlenecks
that ought to be fast, Python for everything else. You can nicely mix
and match Python and C/C++ with tools like SWIG or with the
Boost.Python C++ library. Give it a try, you won't regret it.

Even if only while developping pure C/C++ code, it ain't bad to use
a hybrid approach for unit testing, rapid prototyping etc. during

Happy new year to all.
