Reducing OO code that is written in C is one of my major interests. After
some investigating myself it appears that having the codebase fully
(rewritten in C++ will have an impact on the performance. So I guess such an
effort will result the code being more C++ish and fully OO, being a mixture
in C with some OO taste.

I have not investigated this yet. But I am very interested to know what the
advantages would be to "upgrade" the code to C99 standards.
