I am against the idea of C++. Why complicate things any more.

My primary concern is that the differences in C++ implementations are much
greater than C and we already have lots of code to deal with the C

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?
