Maybe you'd like something from Stroustrup though (regarding C/C++
For maintenance programmers, each incompatibility is yet another thing
for the programmer to keep in mind and a source of errors. For library
builders, differences require decisions about which language and
dialect should be used for implementation and create a need for
multiple interfaces (or a common interface using minimal features
