That reminds me, why do a number of programs use libg++ when they never
call any of the special GNU C++ functions?

libstdc++ is supposed to contain all of the ANSI classes like iostream and
so on, while g++ is supposed to contain gnu extensions, I think it is
being dropped in favour of STL, but I'm not too sure..
