    Use the right tool for the purpose. You bet for rewriting half the
    C++ runtime in C instead of not-using the bloated part of C++.
    Pretty. If you're going to program in a OO way, use an oo language.
    And I get tired of people saying C++ is bloat. My pupils at 5th course
    of Computer Science still think C++ is bloat. They have no idea on
    compilers. And they bless Ada.
    A 5th level virtual function still has only a one-level
    indirection overhead when called. Low level code is just as efficient
    as C. If a C++ program is bloated it is the programmers matter, not
    the language.

    kidding ????
    Perhaps GTK+, but Xt...
