I'm a big fan of C++ and yet I find myself agreeing with nearly all
all your gripes of C syntax. Especially in the left to right reading
of pointer references. My only disagreement is with using the curly
brackets to distinguish code blocks. I think you score some good
points with better compiler parsing and debugging.
However, I think they are more convenient to type, easier to remember
and distinguish themselves better than 'fi', 'od', 'esac', etc.
