Actually, given my ideas for the Apache 2.0 module API (go back and read
the  Apache mail archives;, C++ support isn't
that tough. In fact, it's not all that bad now. The part of the module API
that deals with the request is very nearly OO. request_rec, server_rec,
connection_rec, BUFF and the like behave very much like objects would.
