One of the questions I got asked is "Why is gtk+ written in C?" This
was asked because widgets in gtk "inherit" the capability of other
widgets and it seems natural to think of it in terms of C++. Not
having been through the original thinking and design, I was wondering
if someone could give me a brief (or not so brief) reason why it's
written in C instead of C++.
