comment Choosing language to write general library in
@Jan - But not true about binding to non-JVM systems. There are literally thousands of ways to for Java to interface to non-JVM code and systems. There is everything from JNA (native access to C libraries etc.) to socket-based solutions to REST APIs.

comment Choosing language to write general library in
@Jan - true that certain mobile platforms have limitations. Though mobile platforms don't really have great portability for anything (JavaScript based solutions are probably your best bet...).

comment Where should I declare variables used in for-loops in Java for maximum efficiency?
Probably not... though you'll need to profile it to find out. However you might want to calculate out.getWidth() and out.getHeight() once outside the loop: currently you are recomputing these on each iteration.

comment Returning different types from one function in a dynamically typed language
Good answer. Worth noting that the Java / statically typed equivalent is to have a function return an interface rather than a specific concrete type, with the interface representing the API / abstraction.
