Why should we? Or, maybe we should, but C++ _is not_ the only logical next
step. Come to thing of it, there isn't a logical next step! Not yet, that is.

Well, in reality you're better of with C++, because of "helping you design
better and easier", and because there are lots of people that think C++ is god
sent. But the problem remains for the rest of us who don't want to switch to
