If we do plan to migrate we will definitely be using only C-style
constructs to start. It will be enough work transitioning compilers
without changing language constructs at the same time.
I've created a patch which implements one small part of this and have 
attached it to https://bugs.wireshark.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=8342
So far, I only changed the code relating to a single dissector that I 
submitted, but the work is easy and almost mechanical, so I can do 
additional code changes if this patch seems acceptable.  We can nibble 
away at it over time and get it done.
