I think you MASSIVELY underestimate the complexity of implementing C++.

The best current attempt I'm aware of is the clang project (
  ) which is aiming to produce a BSD-licensed C++ front-end of the
LLVM project. They are making very good progress through a very
difficult piece of work, and I'm sure would be happy with any help
anyone might offer.
