I've got only two concerns about that:

. This your email will get lost in outer space soon; don't miss to
  file a patch request as soon as the discussion here settled.  Please
  don't forget to patch the documentation (I think, at least the FAQ
  contains some remarks about the state of C++, so that should be

. Where should those workarounds go to?  I'm not a C++ expert, but I
  think as new and delete are operators in C++, no particular header
  file is needed for them.  So, we could either add them to <stdlib.h>
  (which declares malloc() and friends for the C language), wrapped in
  #if defined __cplusplus brackets, or add a separate header file,
  like <compat/c++.h>, or something like that.
