Mark's answer should help.

We don't use enough of the C++ ecosystem in MySQL, I sqy.  I'd love to  
use the STL* and exceptions**, and probably more.  We usually think we  
can do it better than the implementors of libraries and compilers,  
which leads us down some strange paths.  It's not specific to C++,  
either; we even have (not well substantiated) reports that our custom  
memcpy that's optimized for specific sized blocks is slower than plain  
memcpy, on some architectures***.
