which is why we're having this discussion!

Not being able to declare a structure inside a structure is to me a
pretty significant loss of syntax.

Do you really want to switch to C++ ??

I'm really trying to understand what the driving need behind the C++
compatibility is. If its for warnings then thats one thing, but if
you really want to switch Samba development to C++ then thats a pretty
major change and merits some discussion I think.
