Howdy All,

Last July Richard Stallman made one significant change to the GNU Coding
Standard so that it no longer prefer C to other such languages.

This was a significant departure from the original coding standard which
preferred C over other languages, and chided C++ in particular.

The latest coding standard can always be found here:

I am curious what people think of having C++ modules as part of the
mainline source code tree.

In particular I was thinking of using code compatible with C++98. Are
there environments we are targeting that don't have access to a C++
compiler? or where G++ isn't available etc?

Would appreciate any thoughts people may have on this.
