    Guys, we're not going to try to make C++ work with the kernel.
    Taking any real advantage of C++ would require rewriting nearly the
    entire kernel.  Just wrapping functions and structures does not
    really add any value.  It would be a multi-year effort just to do
    the translation and that isn't what the project is about.
