You sure about that.  If you just keep your head on you should not
get into trouble.

If you say so, you're the one working on the thing.

Well, not that virtual functions are that evil (this from the person
who designed half of pg2d around not putting any in ppgSurface:).

If you mean C. vs Implementation-in-C++-but-with-extern 
"C"-interface.  I think it depends on what the implementor thinks
is easier.  I think if I ever get around to doing the event system,
I will do this C-impemented-in-C++ trick because I did two prototypes
in pure C and they got pretty messy.  I'm too much of a spoiled-OO
programmer I guess.
