Hmm, I doubt that (although I don't want to start a C++ vs OCaml flame war 
here :-) ). The problem really isn't the language, but how the application is 
structured. KiCad's code may have some weakness in that respect here and 
there, because it was written "to learn [and while learning] C++", but I 
wouldn't attribute it to the use of C++.

But I agree with you, we need Undo first :-)
