It could be simpler then refactoring, but a lot of C++ typing tutors
are already exist. My vote is for plain C but with modern codding
techniques C99 or even C11 [although nothing interesting in C11, or I
missed something :)] and just refactoring/rewriting pieces.

More relying on std and syscalls then implementing things by ourselves,
DESIGN!!! and self speaking code with intention of "less lines and more

It wouldn't be ideal at the end: time-resources-knowledge, it never is,
but making it good just in C would be cool IMHO.
