Is there any fundamental reason why smbd couldn't 
be have been written in C++.  In much of the code 
there is an attempt to object orientify the code.  Why 
not just write it in an object oriented language?  I'm
looking at tweaking a portion of the smbd code for a custom application
and would like to use C++ along with STL.  
Any reasons this isn't feasible assuming I catch 
all exceptions?
