I actually don't think anyone got back to you. First off, if you have
knowledge of C and Java, I can't imagine browsing through C++ code
would be very difficult. Most of the coding doesn't involve making
new classes, so even just knowing C is usually sufficient.

There were plans to port ht://Dig to Java as a 'htdig4' tree. At the
moment, it is dead (or sleeping?) since most of us see more utility
in working on the current htdig3 tree. I don't know what kind of
response would be generated if someone picked up htdig4.

I hope that answers your question (if a bit late).
