It's still bad because it's C++.  C++ is evil.  C is the One True Way to go, 
well supported by even gcc 2.7!  Only lazy programmers use C++, and there is 
absolutely positively no way to make C++ libraries, as their binary 
compatibility is impossible to maintain.  Luckily no C library ever has become 
binary incompatible.


Well obviously that's all bunk, but I do wonder what the next reason will be 
why developing a cross-desktop interface is supposed to be so bad.
