Here I meant *idiomatic* (STL-heavy) C++. Some features e.g. references 
are well known to programmers of other languages and IMO simple to learn 
and understand. I think using a dynamic string type is also well 
understood by modern programmers. Even if we just used those two things, 
I think it would be worth starting to use some C++.
