No, no and no.  The fact is that that guy, so-called Akim, works on
Autoconf, just as Paul does.  And we do have a fair bit of knowledge
on how portability can be reached.  That way (#ifdef MY_SYSTEM), is
not the right one.  We've been too greedy, willing the best for both
worlds (C and C++).

It doesn't work.

So we keep targeting at C, and people who want to do C++ will know
what they have today.  We thought we could prepare the work for them.
That's wrong, we cannot.  It is intrinsically wrong to try to do nice
C++ with namespace and so forth, while on the other hand producing a
function, not an object.
