I think that dev-util is a very specific category containing

misclassifications in them, but from a user perspective I don't really
care about the language anything is written in. As C++ is so
widespread I don't think that anything but app-misc or the like should
be moved into a dev-cpp category.
This isn't for what the package is written in, but more for what the
package is for. If the package is a utility for use when doing coding
with C++, like the ones I listed, then I think it should be in dev-cpp.
That's what the metadata for the category describes it to be.
Once again I'd like to point out that organizing packages in the tree by
category is a stupid idea for this very reason.
