I am curious why the C++ source files have the extension `.c` and not
`.c{c,pp,xx}`.

Well, I had programmed in C for quite a while before getting into
contact with C++. To me, C++ was not a totally different programming
language, but rather an extension to C. Therefore I didn't see the
need to get used to an all new file extension and just stayed
with ".c". Besides, it's less typing ;-)
