FWIW, I was doing development in C++ full-time for most of the 90's.
So it's not like I'm not reasonably familiar with the benefits.
And yeah, if we were starting from scratch I'd probably say C++ is
a good choice.  But the price of getting there from here is higher
than the value of being there, IMHO.
