Sure. But check the compatibility reflector.
Really, they should be the same, or at least C++ an extension:
in the abstract, C++ runs the same architecture as C.
I'd hate to see C++ extended to support concurrency,
and then C doing the same -- and ending up with incompatible
abstract machine models.
