A library exposes a C interface. The API makes use of glib's linked list 
data structures etc. You find that unacceptable because you prefer C++ 
STL data types. So, if the library exposes a C++-style API instead 
(which makes uses of STL), the C programs can't use that library 
anymore. How do you want to get around that problem, other than 
accepting the pure C API?
