The plugin facility should in principle work with C++ code, and our initial
testing indicates that it does.  Once our testing is completed, we will add
this capability to the web documention for Stata plugins, available at

http://www.stata.com/support/plugins

This should take about one week.  

Note that the addition of C++ support will also require an update to
-stplugin.h-, which will also be made available on the web site.  Naturally, 
the new -stplugin.h- will be fully backwards-compatible.
