Well, technically, that's wrong.
The main thing about extern blocks is they change the namespace of
what is in them.
extern "C" puts something in the C namespace.

Not as easy to do.
Well, not true, it's just as easy to fix, but you pay a lookahead

I'll look into it, but you won't get a patch for it for another few
hours (which is relatively long for me).
