C99 compatibility in perpetuity has an opportunity cost. Those who wish to preserve C99 compatibility for PROJ for all of Even's WKT efforts did not step forward to take the work on. Those who can only use C99 can continue to use the older versions of the software. If we need to open some maintenance branches to preserve their continued patches and improvements of those branches, they can start making pull requests against the relevant release tags.

Just to be sure:

Do you mean that there will not be a C interface to the new PROJ? Or
you are meaning that PROJ itself will be c++11, but with a C API for
client programs to use. I am guessing/hoping the later.
