I would go as far as suggesting that C++ becomes a requirement.  I did that in
HarfBuzz and never looked back.  It's possible to use many useful features of
the language (templates, etc) without linking to libstdc++, so from the user's
point of view there's absolutely no difference between that kind of a library
and a C library.
