Is this because they decided that C was safer than the RTL/2
language which was quite widespread over there ten years ago ?
[ I ask this because we used to be told that Ada was replacing
all of the RTL/2 because of its superior safety features - to
hear that in fact all this stuff is now written in C is a little ironic
but totally unsurprising. ]
