I don't see a reason for this restriction anymore. In fact, using C++
would make some of this code much more readable and maintainable.
Speaking if C++ in the flesh: How strict was this in the past anyway;
looking at src/main/flesh.cc from 1998, written by Tom? Of course, this
is just a minimal C++ program, not using any of the features that past
C++ compilers could have stumbled over.

Is there a way to tell Cactus to save error messages to a file? If so,
we should use this to create testsuites testing error detection...
