I know my favourite editor interprets .h files as C++ headers.
I assume it does this because the C++ syntax rules include all the C ones,
so the worst that will happen is that C++ keywords that aren't reserved
names in C will be highlighted (e.g. variables named "new")
I don't know whether this is a widespread practice though.
