thanks!  The reason for the g++ linking is because of the initial main()
program which is a sequence of calls to each implementation module all
inside a try clause.  The except clause calls the default error handler.
All exception throwing uses the c++ mechanism - which allows for inter
language throw/catching and allows swig to produce script wrappers etc.

There is an interesting thread here which covers more of the detail:
