Patrick's original implementation of PGE was in C. Now that he's got a nifty PIR implementation, it shouldn't be too much work for him to create a C implementation again if the need arises. As I understand it, the main problem is that the PIR implementation utilizes continuations quite a bit, so those would have to be "ported" to C as well to keep the implementation simple yet equally as powerful.
