    A very, very long time ago, back in the 0.99.14 days, we actually
    tried to switch to using a C++ compiler to compile the kernel, so we
    could guarantee type-safe linkage. g++ sucked back then, so the
    experiment was abandoned, but I don't know if there would be interest
    in trying again.
