I have used SOM before, unless it is integrated into the compiler (Direct
to SOM is what IBM calls it) it is very irritating. Furthermore SOM has
problems with some of C++'s features, mostly to do with multiple
inheritance. Other than that, C++ encapsulated in SOM would be a
wonderfull thing to have in Linux!
