GLib-2 and Gtk+-2 already have C++ wrappers (and so do pango, atk and cairo).

My question is: instead of to writing OO in C (which has been fondly
described by some as "putting makeup on a pig: the pig doesn't enjoy
it, and the end result is frightening" :-), wouldn't it be more
efficient to use the already existing C++ wrappers ?

Just my  0.02 question.
