The difference between the c++ and g++ front ends is that g++ includes
libg++ in the link.  Since libg++ is distributed under the GNU General
Public Licence, users might inadvertantly taint their own code if they
use g++ to link their programs.

I'd like to recommend that the default C++ compiler front end be
changed from g++ to c++.
