No objections.

Anything that can't build g++, I'd guess. That can't be many.

> 3. Which OSes don't support templates?
Templates are different in each compiler, and even between versions of
compilers. There's no real standard yet.

I would if that were all I did, save for the code bloat.

Not really.

Not really. I'd go for Java over C++ at this time.
