No, that would mean you have to jump through hoops to use it from C.

It's simple to write a library in C++ but make its public interface C. There are many projects that use what I would describe as sane C++ (unfortunately there are also many that use every possible feature).

IMO, setjmp/longjmp is significantly uglier.

But, let's end this debate, it's unlikely to lead to anything productive :)
