NeXus C++ API

is someone working on a C++ API for NeXus or has someone developed one?
I'am currently working on this topic and it may be helpful to share ideas.

The work on this API resulted in the question why the C API does not make a
consequent use of the const specifier?

For example the NXmakegroup function:
	The first parameter is CONSTCHAR, but the second not, although the
	functions executed with that parameter (strcmp, sprintf and Vsetclass)
	declare it as const char.

And why do you use sprintf instead of snprintf?
