Is that true?  Can't you write libraries in C++ and export acceptable
portable C interfaces for them at the same time?  I always thought you

I'll dig up some code if anyone needs convincing...

As for C and GNOME, well they seem to be going the Mono way for their
next generation desktop so ostensibly they will have a pretty advanced
development environment at some point...  they'll probably have
duplicated the bloat of kdelibs vs Qt in GNOME though.
