What do you expect of library vendors that want to sell their
implementation? There were fears that certain C++ features would make it
less useful for embedded developers (be it memory bloat or what else) so they
came up with EC++, which helped them sell to the embedded world.

It was always funny to see pjp and the dinkum folks defending EC++ on
comp.languages.c++ :)
