I meant that it will be easier rewrite C into C, and such C++ adventages
will be better usefull and will be easy added to well documented C source.
Trying to rewrite current xwpe in C++ equals to rewriting it all from
scratch which i want to avoid. I program in both C and C++ and i have
nothing against 'final' xwpe written in C++, but for rewriting itself
i would rather use pure C, to ensure that i know what exactly is each 
instruction doing.
