There is no official recommendation for the language in-between EC++
and C++ - C++ minus exception handling - AFAIK, but it is no secret
that Boost is targeting that "language" as well, and also C++/CLI to
some extent.

Strange as it might seem, quite sensical programs have been created in
this unnamed language, even though one cannot use the sometimes nifty
feature of throwing in a constructor. So, I fail to see how it "does
not make any sense."
