'd like to see C++ have its own group, if for no other reason than so
that I can avoid having to filter through net.lang.c; the group should
concentrate on the functionality in C++ which is a superset of C.  (I
think C++ can maintain its "C" character outside of net.lang.c on its
own merit). Is C++ widespread enough outside of AT&T to justify a
netwide newsgroup?
