[asterisk-dev] Why not C++?

I was wondering why Asterisk is not written in C++ or if 
there is any interest in having Asterisk written in C++.

I have been watching the list of bugs and other proposed 
changes to asterisk (fast-ast2).
It has occurred to me there may be great values in leveraging 
something like the BOOST libraries to take care of some of 
the minutiae that seems to cause problems.

I am thinking mostly collecitons, threading, string processing.

If this have been discussed before, could some one direct me to it?

I am interested in hearing any and ALL opinions!
