For low-level stuff C is fine.  Otherwise, I'd far rather use Java, or
Python, or half-a-dozen other languages.  They have all benefited from
hindsight that evolved from C++'s mistakes.

Any major move to depart from C should be by consensus (e.g., the GNU
Coding Standards should get revised).

Just for fun, here's a complete implementation of POSIX uniq written
in Python.
