It's a pity, though, that you do not suggest something even more useful,

I have tried compiling Git with a C++ compiler, so that I could test
whether that was a viable alternative for MSVC in case its C++ mode
supported features its C mode did not.  Let's just say that the
compilation aborted very quickly and I gave up after a few minutes.

It's 3 cleanup patches and one hacky patch with this size:

 80 files changed, 899 insertions(+), 807 deletions(-)

to compile with C++. It passed the test suite last time I tried. Getting rid of the remaining 1000+ -fpermissive warnings is a different matter, though.

I can revive the patches if there is interest.
