Probably wouldn't mind.

I didn't have a ball with it when I had to use it in college.  I ended up
making every private data member public. :)

If we can enable C++ modules without it (which is sounds like we can) then
I'd probably be opposed to this because of the performance hit.  If we
want to recode it I suggest we start with a different language
alltogether, and hopefully Java can live up to its potential and be that
language.  If not, though, I don't think we're running into limitations of
C anytime soon.
