We have plenty of very ugly macros anyway. See fastgetattr(),
HeapKeyTest(), HeapTupleSatisfies(), HeapTupleHeaderSetXmax and friends,
Assert() and friends.
I'm not saying that we could get rid of them with C++ ... just that we
have ugly macros for which type checking seems to be ... primitive.
Anyway I think the prize for weird strangeness in macro usage would go
to PG_TRY and friends.
