The _one_ factor that made C++ win against its competition - 
despite its shortcomings - is by far that it could already 
compile your C code. So it's an easier sell if you can just 
change the compiler.

You can't convince to change language someone who has already an 
existing codebase, it would just make life worse in most of cases.
