I've actually done, that you know... a real pain in the arse, but I've done it...
;-)  I just like C++ because I CAN derive classes, there are generic
class/function abilities, and you don't have to declare the variales at the
beginning of a code block (that's the big one, there, that is).

Anyway, I get the point... C is more uniform across platforms.  As long as
there's a nice wrapper/whatever-you-call-it for C++, I'll be happy!  ;-)  Not
that my happiness matters, but as a game developer, I know that straight C is
dying... nothing is used in high-end games except C++, the occassional assembler,
and the odd scripting-language to control internal events.  So I like C++.  So
