In C++, yes. I don't think it is in C.
Now that C++ exists and is evolving alongside C, I'd have thought it'd be
sensible to reserve all the C++ keywords (new, delete, throw, etc.) in C too
so you've got simple source compatibility between the two. In fact I thought
they'd done this but I've glanced at the C99 standard and I must be making
this up :-/
