Not me. What I remember is that Nathan Myers explained that C stdio, at least
traditionally worked exactly like that, and since Nathan *designed* parts of
the first C++ Standard itself, actively participated to all the meetings which
led to C++98, I trusted him by and large and found the new design
straightforward and well performing in most of out benchmarks. I still believe
he was quite right. Anyway, when you post something to the mailing list,
remember to add him in CC.
