$ is not up for grabs for C++. This has been discussed in SG7 and
elsewhere before, but for the purposes of this discussion,
suffice it to say that there are existing tools that rely on $ not
being C++, and those tools can do balanced-token parsing
of C++ source code, without parsing C++, because they know that $ isn't C++.
