Xapian is a C++ class library, so you can't write a completely pure C

The non-Xapian-related code in the simple examples is pretty minimal, and
it looks to me like they'd be less clear if they used C library calls
rather than C++ one - it is the Xapian code we are trying to demonstrate
here after all.

If you really think they'll be simpler without STL use, feel free to send
in such examples.
