Good point. The definition of build-essential says:

"[...] a standard "Hello World!" program written in C or C++".

What happens if what it's considered the "standard hello-world program
written in C++" changes over time? Was it really a good idea to
include "or C++" in the definition of build-essential?

(The good thing about standards... :-)
