Sorry? .h files are C headers at the first place, and I don't think C
is uncommon. I write C, and many people still write C nowadays.
Moreover, there's C++ specific header extensions (H, hpp , …) that, I
think, should be used for every C++ headers, at least if they contains
For my point of view, it seems obvious that .h should be kept as C
headers, and if C++ programmers uses .h for their C++ headers, they
"just" have to switch manually the filetype (or edit their
filetype_extensions.conf ;)) if the C filetype don't work.
I strongly think that .h is a C header extension and it should be kept
as so, moreover because C programmers can't use another extension for
their headers (and should not), then are penalized by default, but the
C++ programmers can use another extension (and, I think, should), then
are not penalized in all cases.
