Noone is saying that you can't do this with C++. We're saying that nobody
*has* done this with C++. If you feel so compelled as to do so, I'll talk to
you in 2+ years when your implementation is starting to mature.
Yes, we're all C++ programmers here, but one of the huge advantages of C++ is
that it *does* allow code reuse from C libraries and frameworks. In fact
that's why it's *C*++.
We could redo everything that has been done and working, or we could sacrifice
a bit to the language gods and just wrap a C API. Wait, that's already been
/me points in the general direction of GStreamer and Tim.
