To end this debate once and for all, I'd love for the C++ API to be
officially deprecated and no longer installed soon after. As long as
libgeos is provided alongside libgeos_c, C++ projects will be tempted to
keep using it. And from my perspective as a package maintainer, I would
like for those projects to stop doing that and have them all use the C
API instead.

Kind Regards,
