You will link with high quality libstdc++ with lots of reusable containers without writing your own "buggy" one. C++ is much much more maintainable than pure C. It drastically increase number of contributors that what like writing high quality and maintainable code without reinventing the wheel.
What exactly do you what ?
A list of current Python containers that are already in C++, that work exactly as our C ones do (otherwise, we will have had to add code to make them work as we want, and surely that will introduce bugs).
Examples of how C++ is more maintainable.
A poll of users that love C++ enough to contribute to CPython because we also use C++, combined with a poll of users currently contributing C code that would stop because they don't know/like C++.
We should also have evidence that C++ is available on all supported platforms that we support CPython on.
