Some of us actually *prefer* working with plain C
when we have a choice, and don't consider ourselves
"stuck" with it.

My personal goal in life right now is to stay as
far away from C++ as I can get. If CPython becomes
C++-based (C++Python?) I will find it quite
distressing, because my most favourite language will
then be built on top of my least favourite language.
