Right, you can use languages with more abstraction to hide some
complexity. However, this also obscures the view on what is really
happening, and limits possibilities. So abstraction is always a

The problem with C++ is that IMHO the abstractions are very poor: they
obscure a lot without really hiding much complexity...
