OK, so that's not exactly true.  I change some things to Python for many reasons
other than the not-so-nice syntax of C and especially C++.

Still, the semantic ambiguity of C/C++ declarations (such as pointers being 
used as references, array begginings, and linked-list beginnings) makes it 
daunting to write any kind of conversion utility from these languages.

The script only translates easy things.
