Hmm... there are many reasons why C++ is better for OO coding. See the C++
FAQ. But still, I have nothing against pseudo-C++ (apart from the fact
that it means you have to learn more stuff).

Good idea - a quick grep and a sort should do this.

Hmm... I tried 'man Henrik' but nothing came up.

Good idea. BTW if someone decides to do this, please do a text version
as well as an HTML version (I hate html manuals - actually what I hate
is that browsers aren't designed for viewing html manuals).
