h1. C++ Helper Classes 

 Below are some helper classes for writing modules in a C++ style.    I do apologise, it is very C++.    Unless you want to help with functionality, the important things are the mod_blank.hpp and mod_blank.cpp files, demonstrating the API I am using.    Handlers relating to connections are much the same as the C API but srv is a data member of plugin_base.    The server, and connection structures are the same as for C.    You may remove anything from the handlers list to prevent the associated p->handler_* pointers from being set.   

 Writing config_options< OptionType > option( "somekey", &some_fn1, &some_fn2 ) will create an option corresponding to "somekey" in the config file.    some_fn1 returns bool and specifies whether the config file value is valid.    If not, some_fn2 is called to set the default value for "somekey".    the defaults for these function pointers are null.    Writing option[ con ] will return a reference to the associated value, according to whether it satisfies config_check_cond.
