Sure, but it's quite easy for C++ ;)
After all this was a c++ bashing presentation, so there was no need to add
a lot of 'real' arguments.

However Nikhilesh asked for "problems with C++ that the people here
that have problems with C++ have", and there are a number of really good
examples in the slides :)

:D I do know his codes^^.
However he does know something about auditing code and about hacking
especially with C/C++ code.
And in security research those corner cases are the most interesting ones.
