Firebird did it 5 years ago. They of course use only small part of C++
and they could do that because they takeover source code and they
started to clean a code.
Advantage of C++ is that it reduce lot of OO code written in C in
postgresql, but it is so big effort to do that without small gain. It
will increase number of bugs. Do not forget also that C++ compiler is
not so common (so good) on different platforms. If somebody interesting
in that yes but like a fork ( PostgreSQL++ :-).
Better idea is to start to use C99 in postgreSQL ;-).
