Remember that C++ gives you multiple ways to do inlines. 

Infact there is NO reason why C++ shoudl have ANY more voerhead then C IF
youvundertsnad what the compiler is doing and code to it correctly.

Typicly the reason C++ code ends up slower is due to mis-coding of
constructors by peopel who do NOT understand whats going on underneath.
