There is an ongoing quest for producing an ultimate robot programming framework that can be utilised in the design of controllers for any types of robots and moreover executing any tasks. Although many solutions have been presented since the early eighties of the XX century and much progress has been attained, the ultimate solution is still far away. The designed frameworks excel in certain areas, while exhibit significant drawbacks in some other. This paper focuses on an alternative solution to this problem -- on fusion of programming frameworks. However, this shifts the problem to another area, namely the communication between the software originating with different frameworks. Combining the capabilities of + and ProgLanFont Player is presented as an example.
