Now, wait a minute, Andrew Klossner, there are some reasons for passing
structures, and they are very natural.  Suppose your numbers were
rational numbers, that is, each number is composed of a numerator and
denominator.  Then it makes sense to pass the structure { int num, den; }
to processing routines.  Similarly with complex numbers { double re, im; },
two dimensional coordinates { int x, y; }, polar coordinates
{ double r, theta}.
