Well, C is not C++.  There are different accepted ways to best program
C or C++.  So it is completely normal what you have seen.  You will
see this with lots of C code, not just Allegro.

Basically, since C++ is subtly not the same as C, even thoug if it often
said that C++ is backwards compatible with C, it isn't all the time.
I think you might call is a C++ bug. ;-)
