I always thought the big chunk of new stuff added in Java 1.5 was a
really bad idea. That took a compact, comprehensible language that
lacked a number of convenient features but at least had a single
"school of practice", and gave it the capacity for the same sort of
fragmentation as you have in C++. But I haven't done Java development
in earnest since that stuff became widespread, so I don't know whether
that's really happened in practice.

Reading a language is (for most projects) more important than writing
it. You yourself took the jackdmp code (in C++) and ported it back to
good old C because it was written "from the wrong school of C++" and
you found C easier to work with. Jackdmp is not exactly weird code --
it's written rather like pre-1.5 Java -- but its C++ is just not the
same C++ as you use. Similarly, for someone like me who has used Qt
for many years, Boost has always seemed largely superfluous and the
language that for you "is C++" is for me something a little bit alien.
Is it possible to write C++ in such a way that every competent C++
developer is happy to work with the results without some sort of
re-education?
