Most Bizarre Rejection Notice I've Ever Encountered

After a little over a month of no followup on that job lead (scroll to the paragraph that starts with "I got a call back from a recruiter") for which I took two online exams, I decided to get in touch with the recruiter who had contacted me regarding the position. When I reached her by phone on Tuesday, she said she had heard nothing from the client but would get back with me. Here is the e-mail message I received from her this morning.
From: (headhunter's name removed)
To: (2amsomewhere)
Subject: RE: following up on Friday's C++ exam
Date: Wed, 20 Dec 2006 09:24:43 -0500

I finally got word back from (company name removed). They are definitely interested but right now they are really looking for stronger C++ developers. They would like to consider you once they find that person. She asked me to keep touching base with her periodically and remind her to continue asking for feedback.

I guess that is good and bad news!!!

Ain't that some of the most contorted HRspeak you've ever seen?
