C++ is touted as for large projects - but there must be a reason that so much of the Linux Kernel is built in C. Could it be CVS? Watch those headers files :-) they'll kill your development curve.

From what I've seen of some of the more advanced rebol programming, the reverse might be the answer: Use rebol to build C++ code - just a thought - and you might want to research what is being done in scheme,lisp and bigloo ----
