For me, c++ seems to be more natural ..
(at least, our *cough* reference implementation is written in c++ ;)

Samba has quite an amount of "strange" pointer hacks (remalloc array, etc),
and the latest purify sessions did reveal quite a lot memory leaks.
IMHO a c++ approach would be at least a bit more save ..
(but .. I am neither an C++ nor an C guru ;)
