just so we;re clear, i started working in C++ in 1992, which is 20 years
ago :) actually, my first task with C++ was to add thread local storage to
Cfront itself ...

i've long resisted many of the more "not-C-like" idioms in C++, which is
something that i tend to regret more and more as time goes on. i know where
i got this tendency from (he shall remain nameless), and i try to overcome
it, but its not always successful. i still fundamentally don't trust the
compiler to do precisely what i want.
