Are there really that many more libraries for C++? I'm not talking
about data structures that you'd replace with builtins, I'm talking
about high level libraries that deal with real world things.
As a couple of examples, I went looking for something like
smtplib. The only thing I turned up was a windows-only smtp/pop
library. I also tried finding a C++ version of mailbox, and the best I
could do was the GNU mailutils library. And that's in C, not C++.
