MongoDB client library: C vs C++

I've been playing a bit with MongoDB recently. Particularly I've looked into source code for client libraries as I was interested in how hard is to change the client API to support async mode of operation. One thing I noticed is that C version of the client library compared to C++ version is shorter and much easier to read. I cannot shake off the feeling that sometimes C++ feels like a step backwards compared to C.
