I must say, this is quite an experiment!

I'm not sure what we should do with it, tho:

- I don't think building Emacs by preprocessing all files through
  a C->C++ converter is going to be a very popular proposition
  (e.g. will make debugging the "C" code even more fun).

- Using a precise GC with the current code base is unrealistic:
  a mostly moving GC is possible, but a fully moving GC would require
  a preprocessing step (see above point).
