Hm... for the record, please note that
 1. I personally wasn't too happy with the results, since it meant
    that I had to agree to drop .hh and .cc in favour of .h and .cpp :-/
 2. The survey was done almost three years ago. Things may have
    changed since then

During the discussions we had back then, someone mentioned that MSVC++
had problems when using other extensions than .h and .cpp. What
specific problems I don't know, and have never tried to get verified.
