Er, sure, but that's obviously not an excuse for simply _ignoring_ the
existing C standard, as nightstrike seemed to be suggesting.  For the
most part, the existing C standard (with the obvious generalizations
where C++ is a superset) works perfectly fine for C++ too -- and yes,
this is still true even if BS is annoyed by some people's use of
"C/C++" (I get BS's point, but it's silly to read too much into it).
