More a poorly documented and perhaps wisely neglected creature.
Not many people know much about it.
AFAIK it allows you to wrap C++ in Obj-C much the way C can easily be  
wrapped in Obj-C, but the obvious limitations are if you get too much  
C++ stuff happening, things could go crazy.
Even apple quietly uses C++ for some things like device drivers.
