I should have mentioned this in my initial email:

C++ was discussed and rejected on the grounds that the Render API is
very central to blender (which is written all in C) and most of the
people maintaining the code are C programmers primarily. There may
have been other reasons that I've forgotten, but the decision was made
already to go with C.
