Really?  To start *writing* in C++, sure we want at least an initial
version of the coding guidelines.  I pointed to those, because they
look like a reasonable start.

To start *building* in C++, I do not think we need to agree on the
coding guidelines.  We are already doing stages 2 and 3, doing stage 1
is a straightforward next step.

This needs to be done, yes.  But not for simply building with C++.
