>> C++ is less verbose?

When I hear the verbosity argument, I like to point out the idioms
required for C or C++ to achieve similar effects to that which is
directly supported in Ada. For example, I like to compare the
addition of the single word "limited" to the need in C++ for
declaring null-bodied functions for a copy constructor and
assignment operator in the private/protected part of a class.
