Like I said, *minority* platforms.  Here are some which come to mind as
quite possibly not supporting C++ well, if at all, yet all have some dialect
of Python available:

    Windows CE: http://sourceforge.net/projects/pythonce/
    Palm: http://pippy.sourceforge.net/
    iPod: http://ciberjacobo.com/python-ipod
    OS/2: http://www.andymac.org/
    QNX: http://sourceforge.net/projects/pyqnx/

If all you care about are mainstream Windows, Unix/Linux and Mac OSX
environments then C++ is no problem.
