When it comes to new modules I fully agree. We should also get better at replacing old modules (well, starting with modularizing stuff), but I think it’s better to keep _old_ code and patches to it C so we properly clean up and modularize as we advance, rather than having a gigantic unstructured mix of C and C++ code in all files.
