  Following this argument, it's bad to make use of C
"features" (pointers, pointers to functions, structures)
to implement an API you want to make available "to all
languages".  Yet that's just what the current API does,
and BASIC users be damned! :-)

  Making use of some of the features of C++ to make
development, maintenance and porting Apache easier, in my
mind, is reason enough to at least see if Apache++ can
perform on the same level as Apache. If it can, then making
use of the features of C++ is no different than using the
features of of C.
