Currently, Google says that the application code must be written exclusively in Python. Code with extensions written in C are not going to be supported. Google also states, that other programming languages may be supported in the future.

“Every Google App Engine application will have enough CPU, bandwidth, and storage to serve around 5 million monthly page-views.” (Google)
