I found it very labor intensive to maintain a mixed Fortran/C++ build
system. I rather take the speed hit than dealing with the constant
trickle of problems arising from non-existing or incompatible Fortran
We distribute a pretty large system in source form to users (biologist)
who sometimes don't even know what a command-line prompt is.
If installation doesn't work out of the box a large fraction
of our users simply give up.
