You have a very vivid imagination.

Unfortunately, imagination isn't very helpful here; the whole idea is to 
do stuff that's actually useful, not just what we'd imagine might be 
useful.  And in that regard, a *lot* of application  programming (which 
includes programming for embedded systems) is done using c++ compilers.

to be opponents, rather because the tasks and relationships force
people to take different points of view.  [Dr. Fritz Todt]
