I think that if you want to keep proj. downwards compatible with C (and 
C++) then you should keep it standard C. If you use c++ in the library 
NOT any "just C" compiler can ever compile it. So as proj. is so small 
library I would keep it standard c since nobody really cares if it is c 
or c++ - and anybody can write it to c++ or whatever in very small time 
- that is not a problem.

So to be able to use proj. in as many targets as possible, also in 
smaller devices like hand held devices or so ... I would strongly 
recommend to keep it standard c for ever! - But when that is now said 
... they most likely do everything else but what is wanted!? haha! (y)
