I concluded quite some time ago that C++ was broken for large-scale
software design and development.  The mistake that is Mozilla is a good
example of how wrong it can go.  OpenOffice is another.  Although I've
not even been able to peek at the code, PostOffice (an MTA written in
C++), yet another if the size and arrangement of the product binaries is
any indication.  I suppose M$-W2k, which is supposedly 30 _million_
lines of code or more is the ultimate best example of how bad a choice
C++ is.  I'm sure some C++ advocate will try to claim that such large
projects would be impossible without C++, but ample evidence elsewhere
in the industry clearly proves them wrong.

no smiley.
