The only thing I would be concerned with, would the basic linux system
(redhat 5.x or what ever) still be able to compile the c++????
If it would not, I would not recommend going to it.
Other than that, if it is more complicated to understand then I would
still recommend not going to it for the newbies again.

If the base code is going to be re-written in c++ would there be others
out there that would be continuing the efforts on the C code?
