It wouldn't take a lot of convincing to make the next version of CircleMUD
in C++.  Or at least that is how Jeremy felt last time the issue came up.
Then the issue becomes whether it is better to start from scratch rather
than try to convert the existing code over to the C++ model.  And if we
start from scratch, should we continue MUD++ (GPL) or begin anew?

Personally, I voted for C because it is much easier to read and understand,
especially for people who would be picking up the code base for the first
time.  I don't feel strongly about it so if the consensus is C++ then
there's no problem with me.

Anyway, finals time...
