I don't think that is true, static arrays do the job way more often than people want
to admit, and they are very well supported by C. Also, performance is critical in
less cases than people like Bjarne Stroustrup want to admit, when it's critical you
probably don't even want to rely on STL since it is not finely tuned (as Facebook's
home brewed library shows, for instance).
