        Well, "bullshit" is a little strong.  That may not have been
        the reason that the hackers wrote the grammar, specs and code
        but that was the reason (or at least one of the reasons)
        bandied about in promoting C++ when it was first getting off
        the ground.

Bullshit is right on.  Hackers make the decisions of what languages
survive, and which ones do not, not "the biz", as bitter unemployed
programmers like to make people think.
