I'd probably suggest that you rethink your aversion to Objective-C++.  With 
ARC, you can safely put Objective-C object pointers in C++ classes (they become 
non-POD) and you can use C++ classes as instance variables for Objective-C 
objects.  Most importantly, you can now put Objective-C object pointers in C++ 
collections and have the memory management behave correctly (I do this quite a 
lot - it's very useful to have things like LLVM's SmallVector class for storing 
small collections of object pointers on the stack).
