RE: A reply to "Diagnosing SVN"

The most recent C++ tool issue I'm aware of is an incompatible ABI
change due in gcc 3.4. I'd also imagine there are also more issues
creating bindings to C++ code than there are for C code.

Aside from the tool issues, though, C++ is a pretty complicated
language. There are (I believe) many fewer people who have mastery of
it than have mastery of C. The many features of C++ often combine to
create code which is very concise, elegant, and a pain in the ass to
debug because too much of what's going on is hidden under the covers.
I'm not saying a project can't be successful for being written in C++,
but there are still valid reasons to choose C for a new project.
