In Norwegian there's a saying (as you will know): "Badly reasoned
argument, so talk louder".
Anyway, I agree with you a long way, but saying there's no place at all
for C++ anywhere seems a bit over the top for me. E.g., I believe C++
Elemental made the right choice in C++ (distributed linear algebra,
where they use templates just enough to make things readable, but not
over-the-top like STL or Boost):
