Ha, that's why I love C++ so much ever since I made the mistake of learning a couple of functional languages.

You can do whatever the hell you want, but

- it takes approximately forever for the added elegance of your nice language extensions to pay off the disgustingness of the template wonkery to enable them because the stupid/ugly syntax eats about 90% of the beauty of the idea
- the next person touching that code will just throw it away and rewrite in what I lovingly call "copy-paste C++", where everything that doesn't fit a for loop is just spelled out in brute force.
